- Made with 100% Tempranillo grapes
- Depth and structure in finish
- Ripe fruit flavor
90 Points - [Refers to 2004 vintage] - "One hundred percent Tempranillo (Cencibel) from old bush-pruned vines, malolactic fermentation and 15 months aging in American oak barriques. Everything one has come to expect from Alejandro — and more! The classic minerality of the 2004 vintage shines through the deep fruit in a multi-layered experience." -Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate, February 1, 2007.
COMPOSITION: 100% Tempranillo
89 Points - [Refers to previous vintage] - "Big and burly, with highly respectable aromas of ripe blackberry, toast and mint. Attractive plum and blackberry flavors follow, and as it passes from palate to finish the wine shows its depth and structure. A little stiff in terms of oak and tannin and kind of simple overall. Still, it’s a wine that indicates that La Mancha could finally be ready for the world stage." -Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, October 01, 2008.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The wines of La Mancha, the sprawling plateau south of Madrid, main claim to fame is being the largest wine-growing region both in Spain and the world. This producer though is highlighted in the 'bible' for Spanish wines (the Peñín Guide) as being "undeniably the best" from the region.
