Winemaker Notes

Nabuko is of equal parts Monastrell and Syrah. The hearty Monastrell is the second most planted grape in Spain.

Monastrell is perfectly suited to Yecla, in Murcia, where it reaches its apex. And it happens to be where Nabuko is produced. The other half of this equation is the noble Syrah, the grape with the longest charted history of all the noble varieties. It adds body and structure. Both grapes are very well adapted to the Mediterranean and thrive in this sunny, high altitude, arid climate. Yecla's altitude, at nearly 2, 400 ft, coupled with temperate Mediterranean Sea breezes, brings cooler night temperatures, giving this wine great freshness.

Nabuko's blend delivers a one two punch with the deep flavors and complex aromatics. In the nose, your initial impression is….northern rhone and then pleasant ripe fruit aromas suddenly appear. Its nice and round in the mouth, making for a very flavorful wine. Only 2,000 cases made for the world.

Try Nabuko with steak frites or as they call it where I'm from steak and potatoes.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Nabuko is a blend of 50% Monastell and 50% Syrah aged for three months in French oak. Purple-colored, the aromatics feature fragrant blueberries and blackberry. This is followed by a chewy, layered wine with spicy blue and black fruits and mineral notes making an appearance. Long and rich, this tasty, balanced effort can be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years.

Senorio de Barahonda, Spain
Senorio de Barahonda  Winery Image

This family company was established in 1925 and has been growing and evolving ever since, latterly passing to Antonio Candela Poveda and his two sons Antonio and Alfredo. The company began in a small bodega (cellar) which has expanded over time according to capacity and technological requirements and now boasts a second winemaking cellar. Today Bodegas Antonio Candela forms part of the family group which also encompasses Señorio de Barahonda as well as Viña de Aliagar, the company which manages the family estates.

Señorio de Barahonda is situated in the north east of the Región de Murcia in the Altiplano district. It is a transisitional zone between Spain’s central plateau and the Mediterranean, surrounded by a ring of low mountain ranges.

Yecla received its D.O. status in 1975 although 20 years prior to that certain bodega had already begun to concentrate on quality, leaving behind more robust and rustic styles to offer new, more interesting bottled reds, the majority of which fully exploit the great potential of the Monastrell grape.

Today the Yecla D.O. comprises 6500 hectares of vineyard.

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.
