RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Cuatro Pasos is 100% Mencia sourced from 70- to 80-year-old vines in pure slate at the highest elevation of the DO. It was aged for 2 months in French and American oak. Deep crimson-colored, it displays an enticing nose of lightly roasted red fruits, graphite, creme de cassis, and red licorice. Dense, super-ripe, and exceptionally concentrated, this mouth-filling effort is a remarkable bargain in savory red wine. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

The discovery of four bear footprints in a magnificent vineyard in the highest areas of the Bierzo inspired the name of this wine. Four firm steps are necessary to reach excellence: the selection of the land, the care of the vine, a suitable climate and carefulness in the elaboration.

Four places: Otero, Hornija, Corullón y Valtuille with four different stories that define the character of their people and vines. And this is how Four Steps came about, 100% Mencía elaborated from grapes chosen from the over 80-year-old vines from the slated lands located in the high areas of the Bierzo region.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, 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.

Most planted and respected 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.
