Review

Benjamín Romeo is above all a vine grower, and it's not the first time we've said that. So we shouldn't be surprised either that his wines are essentially fruit-driven. They have a special elegance and refinement, but their fruitiness always stands out. For Predicador, he dedicates the grapes of the estate's youngest vines (aged between 20 and 35 years old), primarily Tempranillo yet with an appreciable amount of Mazuelo (9%), capable of achieving the concentration and balance that will characterise this wine. Predicador is a polished grape extract, with all the richness and complexity of a thoroughly fine wine.

Benjamín Romeo is also a winemaker and a very meticulous, exacting man; obviously, the work done in the winery is no less important and we can appreciate that in the wine’s perceptible smoothness, in those velvety tannins underpinning that fresh fruit. The wine mellows in French oak barrels, though not new ones, as they have held one wine; balance between fruit and oak every time.

Predicador is a red with a bright, intense colour, which smells of fruit and earth, but also of balsamic notes, menthol and wild herbs; that feeling of being deeply rooted to the earth which is palpable all the way through. This is a concentrated, mature, fresh and complex wine, with a certain minerality (stones), some subtle caramelised sugar notes, liquorice, spices (cloves) and the scent of red roses, and plenty of volume. Decant it at least an hour beforehand, especially while still young, and you will get full enjoyment from this vibrant wine, a powerful but accessible Rioja, created to reach the general consumer.

Un vino punzante y con marcada personalidad

Color rojo cereza picota. Limpio y brillante con capa cubierta. El vino presenta en nariz sobre todo fruta roja. Ligeros toques de bayas negras. Es un vino relativamente complejo. Aromas a monte bajo, tomillo, espliego pasando por cerezas rojas y marcados toques de fresas y frambuesas silvestres. En boca es un vino expresivo, punzante y poderoso, muy fresco, con un volumen intermedio y pleno de sensaciones frutales. Quizá tiene una acidez un poco marcada. Sus taninos son golosos de fruta. Su persistencia es media alta y es un vino con personalidad.
