Vinedos y Bodegas Dominio De Tares Bembibre 2015
Bright wine of deep ruby colour, some garnet highlights, which shows a lot of concentration and depth of colour in the glass. On the nose, the wine is at once complex and deep with remarkable aromas of ripe blackberry, prune, roasted nuts and balsamic herbs.
On the palate, Bembibre is balanced and intense, full-bodied with a charred oak character. A dry start, velvety alcohol and acidity, very rounded tannins and commanding flavours of ripe wild berries, prune and toasted bread.
Enjoy with rich slow-cooked stews, game or lamb. We advise decanting the wine 30 minutes before drinking and serve at a temperature of 16C for a full expression of aromas.
"Very old vines at 650m. Aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. Unnecessarily heavy bottle. Blackish purplish crimson. Sweet, rich, macerated brambles on the nose. Sweet and round - not unlike a very fine Pomerol in texture (sorry to compare to a French wine!) but with the energy of Mencía and the 'minerality' of a fine Bierzo. Clearly a good vineyard and good selection. Not a silly price. Long and sumptuous. Drink 2019 - 2029.
