Cellar/Tasting Notes
This amazing collaboration between Rothschild and Vega Sicilia is 100% Tempranillo. Pablo Alvarez, Vega Sicilia director, is a fan of the Vina Real wines from the 1950s-1960s and those are the kind of wines he'd like to produce but also wanted incorporate some aspects of modern Rioja in an attempt to get the best of both worlds, the acidity and finesse of the classics, and the aromatic purity and fruit expression of the modern wines. The 2009 Macan is the result of this melding of both worlds.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93
"The 2009 Macan has aromas of black rather than red fruit, ripe and intense blackberries with some floral notes developing with time. Dense with licorice and some prune flavors, it is spicy and balsamic as well as tighter and more backward. They told me they don't like green aromas, but they also dislike notes of liqueur. Concentrated but managing to keep the freshness, it is a clean, powerful and modern red in need of a little bottle aging to polish its tannins. It will be fascinating to see how these wines develop in bottle, and how the Rioja character, the vineyards, come through with time."
