flagSardon de Duero / Spain
Red

The 1996 Cuvee Palomar is a 50% Cabernet Sauvignon / 50% Tempranillo blend. The latter varietal comes from a chalky hillside, and the Cabernet Sauvignon from a gravelly vineyard that was once a riverbed. The 1996 was aged in 100% new French oak, and bottled without filtration after 16 months of aging. It boasts an impressively saturated dark ruby/purple color, as well as complex aromas of cedar, new saddle leather, roasted herbs, and black currants. Rich, full-bodied, and harmonious, this elegant, yet authoritatively flavorful wine exhibits impressive purity and overall equilibrium. Moderate tannin in the finish suggests 2-3 years of bottle age will be beneficial. The wine is capable of lasting for 15 or more years. Oct 1998, www.robertparker.com
