2006 Finca Allende, Calvario, Rioja

Sold Out

Very much in its infancy, the colour could be mistaken for Malbec. The nose is as dense and powerful as the colour suggests, however, there’s great balance here which, given time, will reveal a wine of wonderful character and dexterity. The fruit is ripe with notes of boysenberries, fig and myrrh all apparent. The palate is surprisingly silky-smooth, rendering the overall picture far more approachable than one might expect.
