Telmo Rodriguez is one of Spain’s pioneer winemakers, advocating native grape varietals tied to the climates and conditions of their sites, and making world-class wines from undiscovered as well as known regions. Perhaps most impressive, while Telmo Rodriguez makes rare and limited wines of astonishing character and quality, his everyday wines have been equally praised, and widely recognized for the tremendous value they offer.
Deepish red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is reserved and quiet, subtly woody and savoury with a note of sage, a hint of pepper, while the palate is rich and chewy and has some texture and density, partly due to abundant tannins. The tannins are ripe and supple, extending the length of the palate. A more earthy, savoury and solidly-textured style of red. It grew and grew in the glass and was a most delicious wine, soft and rich, fleshy and beautifully balanced.
