Candio Valle de la Orotava Listan Negro 2017


Lätta röda bär och vulkanisk hetta. Kanske något blått bär också 😀. Påtagligt rökig. Peppar. Järn? Medium + syra. Kan nog ligga ett tag. Etna vs Tennerife 0-3. Bra! — 2 days ago

Vinas Viejas Valle de la Orotova Listan Negro 2017

I grew up in the volcanic area of central Oregon so the smell, taste, and texture of lava is quite familiar to me. Which is what jumps out at me immediately on the nose, “Aa lava,” which is hot when it comes out but cools quickly and dries in hard, sharp chunks. This wine emits a distinctive aroma like hot (dried) Aa lava or asphalt. It is also quite herbal with juniper berries and sagebrush aromas and flavors. I can hardly get fruit here, dark cherry, spicy plum perhaps but the minerality is so interesting, so complex, I don’t even care about the fruit! I feel I could go on about hot rocks and ash and morning after campfire when you burn juniper and olive wood. It’s truly delicious, savory, and special! The acidity is unbelievable given this is a hot climate wine. The tannins are perfectly grippy. Medium long mineral finish makes me think this wine will age quite nicely! — 2 months ago
