Dehasa La Granja Tinto 2007

$40.00

There is hardly any development, well, there is some, but considering the age, remarkable. If you were under the impression that tempranillo doesn’t age well, you would be incorrect. Tasting a raft of 2007 Bordeaux’s recently, some of them 10 times the price, it had me wondering why we don’t drink more Spanish wines. Aromatic, with cigar box, cut flowers, cherry cola, blueberry and tobacco. Plush palate, quite open, it must have been really chewy when it was young! Some creaming soda, vanilla, sweet cherry, five spice, cocoa and bay leaf. Terrific tension between primary and tertiary notes, and the tannins and acidity still have plenty of stuffing for a longer haul. Absolute bargain. Waters Wine Co

For those more familiar with Fernández’s wines via his Ribera del Duero Estates: Pesquera and Condado de Haza – Dehesa La Granja is his Zamora outpost. Purchased in 1998, the ranch is sited on the Guareña River, at altitude, lying just outside the boundaries of the Toro region.
