Details for Finca La Estacada Selección Varietales 2015
Bottle size and vintage
A Crianza with a varied composition and a rich aromatic complexity, a blend of five varietals: the most highly-prized by the bodega, Tempranillo; two Bordeaux, Cabernet and Merlot; Syrah, a newcomer to the region; and Mazuelo, another indigenous variety.
NOTE: Decanting is recommended before serving.
This wine is a dark cherry colour, very dense and has ruby hues on the rim. It offers a complex nose, revealing notes of cocoa, coffee liqueur, cedar-wood, black fruit, balsamic aromas and mineral hints. It is generous, elegant, fleshy and subtle on the palate, showing traces of fine oak, black plums, blueberries and toasty notes, and comes over as smooth, fresh and well-balanced.
Aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, and afterwards for 7 months in bottle.
