Abadia Retuerta Cuvee El Palomar Sardon de Duero 1996 750ml

Proprietary Blend from Castilla Y Leon, Spain

Cellar/Tasting Notes
80% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. "Cabernet – Tempranillo" refers to the increasingly popular blend of Cabernets Sauvignon or Franc, with the darling of Spanish viticulture, Tempranillo. In many ways the red wine blend is Spain’s answer to the Bordeaux blend – this is beginning to be reflected in the pricing of the wines. Cabernet – Tempranillo is popular in Spain and abroad, with a handful of countries experimenting with their own versions of the blend. Spain remains the undisputed champion of the Cabernet and Tempranillo blend."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Saturated dark ruby. Pungent, stony aromas of cassis, black raspberry, toast and flowers. A step up in intensity. As dense and lush as the regular bottling, but even firmer and more sharply delineated owing to the wine's strong minerality. Still, this offers truly enticing sweetness in the mouth. Strong oak tones on the very long finish."
