Description · Abadía Retuerta

2006 Abadía Retuerta Selección Especial (Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon)

Selección Especial is dense ruby-garnet in color, with a subtle, complex nose of ripe red berry and wild black cherries offset by notes of violet, menthol, spice and vanilla. Silky, ripe red fruits and hints of spice and mint predominate on the palate, with a full, harmonious balance underscored by refined tannins. The finish is finely textured and lingering.

Abadía Retuerta Selección Especial

Aromas of very high intensity, again the delicious red fruit, ripe and sweet black fruit also around the rear, moving the glass appears the timber but by the hand of the fruit well together, some licorice, toffee.
Flavor entered silky and dense, well-balanced, fruity and flavorful taste with a long post that fills the mouth.
The breeding has given structure and good body but without invading the essence of the fruit, I guess this should not be too easy.
