Localization: La Mancha, Spain

Tasting Notes: This wine is terrific in the vintage and is styled for immediate enjoyment. A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot, it shows lots of savory details at this early stage, yet the wine doesn’t seem manipulated or “over-worked.” On the contrary, the pure, primary fruit notes are very naturally interlaced with the savory accents, and the wood influence is minimal and very well integrated. Moreover, the wine’s acidity and tannin are also so nicely interwoven that the wine is seamlessly delicious, yet still not simple, thanks to all those savory details. At the risk of repeating myself: Terrific wine, ready to rip, and an outstanding value.

Notes: Varieties were aged, separately for 12 months in 70% American and 30% French oak barrel, additional aging in tank and bottle

The Domain: Pago de La Jaraba is a family-owned winery built in the heart of La Mancha. While they can trace a history of notable regard for wines grown on the estate back to the mid-1700’s their current
goal is to produce high-quality, exclusively estate-sourced, flag waving examples of the new “modern-traditional balanced” wines coming out of Spain.

They follow traditional, sustainable methods and farm 80 hectares of vineyards. In addition they also grow cereal crops – wheat and barley as well as sunflowers, almond, pistachio and olive trees. Finally they raise their own flock of sheep on estate scrub/forest both to enhance and protect soil quality and for production of artisan Manchego cheese.
