Sold, has a bright new world fruit aspect to it. Deep dark fruits and great tannic structure and texture

Opened tight and needed an hour to unfold. Petrichor, dark chocolate, espresso, raspberry and a super long finish. Continues to gain weight and complexity after a couple hours.

On day 1 this was too hard and hot, the second day the wine came together, but with 8 years of life it still tasted like a baby with an enormous big palate of jammy flavours, alcohol, acidity and port-like aftertaste. Will it ever come together?

The Spaniards definitely know their wines are not just for pairing! This gem is not only great with your steaks and lamb and any other juicy treats... It will go with goats cheese, mushrooms, bread and olive oil... And even your chocolates!

Best thing about
#AbadiaRetuerta is that it is just a pleasure to have a glass on its own. No need for pairing... And well... If you share it, then it will taste even better. Tobacco, plum, oak bouquet; and a rounded and perfectly balanced palate. Definitely made with care to be enjoyed with passion! #SeleccionEspecial2011

Great fruit. Spicy Peruvian food tonight was too much. Would be an excellent pair for lamb.
