Winemaker Notes

Deep red colour. In the nose, you will find notes of ripe red fruits ans spices. Full-bodied, nicely acidid and fruity in the mouth, roundes and full of chararcter.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The entry-level 2010 La Tribu is made up of equal parts Monastrell, Garnacha, and Syrah aged in oak for 4 months. Aromas of meat, game, underbrush, blackberry, and blueberry are followed by a succulent, impeccably balanced, friendly wine that offers outstanding value. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Bodega El Angosto, Spain
Image of winery
Bodega El Angosto belongs to the Chamber family and is located in the Finca Santa Rosa, inside an old bodega from the nineteenth century. The vineyards are located on two farms: Santa Rosa and El Angosto.

The vineyards are nestled in hillside soils, calcareous and poor in organic matter. The goal of Bodega El Angosto is to develop Mediterranean wines, elegant and concentrated, while respecting the land.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
