Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Bright ruby-garnet in colour, the edges are starting to show the signs of maturation. The nose is an attack of bright red berries mingled with exotic spices. The oak treatment shows best on the palate, lending to silky tannins and a lingering finish with hints of vanillin oak. This bottle is drinking well now, but could benefit from some more bottle ageing.
Ratings Rated 92 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Astrales is pure Tempranillo from different plots of vineyard mainly in Anguix (Burgos) which was aged for 22 months in oak barrels, mostly used. It has a creamy nose with aromas of fruit-of-the-forest yogurt and spicy oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with abundant, grainy tannins, is powerful and concentrated, with oaky, creamy flavors, in a commercial profile. It ends quite dry, so it should be better in a couple of years. Drink 2015-2019"
Awards Rated 91 Points Wine Spectator - "Bright, juicy flavors of blackberry and currant mingle with toasty and smoky notes in this lively red. Firm tannins support the fresh texture. Balanced and focused. Drink now through 2021. 3,500 cases made. –TM"
