Red kabi energy! Love it. My WOTN.
A little different from my last bottle (more flinty reduction), but notes still hold true in general.

High elevation Spanish Trousseau. What?! Oh man, was it good! Delicate and ethereal, but packed with flavour. The nose was so floral, with lifted red fruits and peppery notes. Oozes energy on the palate - cranberries, sour cherries, dried herbs, and mouthwatering salinity. Impossible to stop drinking once you get started. At 12% abv, this is a true "red kabi" and wine for one.

Kodynga, grispiss, krut, torkat läder, röda bär, färska örter. Betydligt mer nedtonad i munnen än på näsan.

Fantastic sappier rendition of Trousseau that really impresses with its light body; pepper, lots of powdered dry green stemminess on the nose. Stemminess, fresh fruit and tannin that carries you along like a feather. Really like this. The somm at Meson do Campo in Villalba lit up with joy when I picked it off his list. "This is the single greatest red on my list that I recommend". What's great is leveraging this in a heavy meal with a buttery steak, and finding respite from the inevitable heaviness. So refreshing to taste a wine from Spain that's light bodied and free of oak--even if certain Mencia growers in Ribeira Sacra and some Penedès reds do it reasonably often.
