The 100% Tempranillo 1996 Cuvee Campanario represents a blend of the finest parcels of Tempranillo. The wine was aged in 100% new French Limousin oak for 16 months, then bottled without filtration. It reveals a saturated purple color, and is more backward both aromatically and on the palate, as well as more impressive. The wine's bouquet falls in the black fruit spectrum of aromas - blackberries, black raspberries, and overripe cherries. Full-bodied and tightly-knit, with intriguing mineral notes, this powerful, rich, layered wine could easily pass for a top-class Bordeaux in a blind tasting. The result of 28 days of maceration, the high tannin is sweet and well-integrated in the wine's framework. (RP)
Darkest ruby color. Spicy black raspberry, violet, licorice and toast aromas lifted by a chalky minerality. Fleshy entry, then very tight and backward, with powerful acids. A distinctly tougher style of wine, wrapped up in its own structure today. This will need several years of bottle aging to express itself.
