2006 El Puntido is the current release, and it is stunning. Remarkably elegant, Burgundy-like expression of Rioja Alta from a cooler high elevation site. High-toned, floral and mineral with silken texture, melted tannins and ample concentration. Iron fist inside a velvet glove.

11/19. Great bottle of wine. Flavor, color, and finish. Nice on the palate.

A medium body Rioja- very smooth but clearly old vine. Not too oak heavy, good earthiness, dark red or black fruits, good acidity.

Ready? Imagine pudding wrestling in vanilla. And you're about to make the pin and you realize you need a glass of red. So a fan hands you a fantastic tempranillo and as you take a sip some pudding, a drop of sweat from a burly French female ref all fall into your mouth at the same time. There ya have it. Get at it!! Yeah Suckling!
