A rich red showing lots of grape-skin and berry character on the nose and palate. Full body-bodied with juicy tannins that follow through to a fresh, long, fruity finish. It's layered and structured. Shows excellent potential. Better in 2017.
The 2013 Sela, a blend of Tempranillo with some 2% Graciano, fermented in oak vats (including malolactic) and matured in second and third use French oak barrels for one year. They use the barrels that have been used for the top wines to age this entry-level red. It's sourced from 15- to 30-year-old vineyards in search of preserving the fruit, but giving it some complexity. This is a truly cool, Atlantic vintage and the wine displays incredible freshness. It is very aromatic and floral, with very integrated oak. It develops notes of red licorice with time in the glass. The palate is equally fresh and very balanced, with very fine tannins. This is a wine of pleasure in a really fresh vintage that was harvested really late, into the end of October. The first vintage of this wine was 2008, and this 2013 could very well be the best vintage so far. 83,976 bottles produced.
