Tasting notes
The 2013 Finca Morenillo is a pure Morenillo from 75-year-old vines grown at 400 meters, aged for 15 months in French oak. It has a ripe raspberry and wild strawberry bouquet that is seductively sensual and well-defined. The palate has a succulent entry of sweet Morenillo, milk chocolate, and a touch of spice and crisp acidity that counterbalances the weight of fleshy fruit on the finish. This should age very well. Very fresh and long after taste. Limited production to 3.000 bottles.

    Just finished a bottle of the 2012. Superb. Very “different”! Really strong notes of chocolate accompanied oodles of fruit. Lovely integrated soft tannins. And superb length. Can I have some more please? Is the 2013 just as good?
