Marqués de Vargas Reserva Privada, Rioja 2011

50.00

Deep black cherry colour with dark chocolatey undertones and violet rims. Rich fragrant nose of dark fruit, plums and mulberries enriched with aromas of violets. Extraordinarily complex, refined nose with developing hints of fresh hay, cedar and tobacco. Great density and velvety texture on the palate meet blackcurrants, ripe plums and ripe crushed dark berries. Well combined tannins from oak and fruit add structured, gamey, eathy notes to the wide spectrum of fruit flavours. Concentrated and sophisticated.

About This Wine...

The Estate

Located in the heart of the Ebro valley, the Hacienda has 65ha under vine. The Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Garnacha vines are protected from prevailing westerly winds. The calcareous, clay soils are low in nutrients producing grapes of excellent quality. No irrigaiton, thereby avoiding weakening of the tannins and no herbicides or pesticides are used. Organically farmed, production is limited to 4000/5000kg per hectare. The wines are aged in fine-grained barrels of French, American and Russian oak.
