El Vinculo Tinto Crianza

2005 Dark ruby color. Wild, pungent dark berry aromas are complemented by violet and tobacco. Sweet berry fruit, with the supple blackberry and cassis flavors firmed by chewy tannins. Finishes sweet, with firm, slightly bitter cherry and blackcurrant skin flavors and very good persistence. Will drink well through 2020.
$45.00 / Bottle   $540.00 / Case

Additional Information

In 1999, the discovery of old, head-pruned Tempranillo (Cencibel) vineyards amidst a sea of white (Airén) grapes convinced Alejandro Fernández of famed Tinto Pesquera and Condado de Haza in Ribera del Duero to undertake one last bodega, in the historic windmill village of Campo de Criptana. Contracting with selected growers for low yields and early, select harvesting, unprecedented balance and structure for the region has been achieved.

This Crianza is made from 100% Tempranillo (Cencibel) from brush-pruned vines, with malolactic fermentation and 18 months’ aging taking place in American oak barriques.
