Winemaker Notes

Aromas of ripe red fruits, vanilla, and pipe tobacco, with a peppery quality adding vivacity. Supple and open-knit, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Closes smooth and gently sweet, with lingering smokiness and easygoing tannins.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Flaco Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth, delightful, and easy on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings pleasing aromas and flavors of black fruit, savory spice, and earth to the fore. Enjoy it with grilled fennel and parsley sausages. (Tasted: May 27, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Flaco, Spain
Flaco Winery Image

Flaco, made with Spain's signature Tempranillo grape, means "dude" in English. In the words of The Savvy Lush, Flaco "is the best goof-proof, budget-friendly wine out there. Spain is the largest producer of Tempranillo. These thick-skinned grapes are grown in regions that have hot days followed by cool evenings. This creates a concentrated, yet balanced flavor." It is produced by Compania de Vinos del Atlantico in the Demoninacion de Origen (DO) of Vinos de Madrid. Flaco shows the complexity of a serious wine for the price of a song!

The luscious fruit and soft texture make it a perfect wine for everyday drinking. Madrid is not only the capital of Spain but also one of the country's most interesting wine growing regions. The outskirts of this great royal city are full of old Tempranillo vines. Most Spaniards do not know that Madrid makes wine, and therefore don't know the incredible values that Madrid showcases at the present time. Madrid is the great unknown.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
