Great wine, awesome core of fruit, juicy, tasty and suave quality vanilla oak tannins. Its drinkable and delicious now but it will continue to improve with yrs in botlle as it gets complexity. Its inky dark color and full body. Simply a great wine a tour of france in the making and unique or differnt in style and approach to Spanish standards, it seems more like a great young pomerol.

About This Producer


The attention this boutique winery has been receiving is very well-deserved. The project is the fulfillment of a dream for three young men - Javier Ajenjo, Julio Cesar Conde, and Jose Luis Simon - who are creating stunning wines. Isaac Fernandez - the nephew of Mariano Garcia, ex-winemaker for Vega Sicilia - excels at bringing the myriad faces of Tempranillo to its fullest potential with the "Neo" wines. They are 100% Tempranillo, grown in limestone and clay soils within a continental climate that sees quite a disparity between daytime and nighttime temperatures. The vines are 50+ years old and the wines, vinified separately by lot, are aged in new French oak for 14 months.

Wine Varietal: Tempranillo


Tempranillo is Spain's noble grape. Grown mostly in northern Spain, some of the best Tempranillo wine comes from the regions of Rioja and the Ribera del Duero. This grape enjoys cooler climates and is sensitive to pests and adverse weather conditions. While Tempranillo can be bottled alone, it is often blended with other Spanish grapes such as Grenache, Carignan, and more recently, Cabernet Sauvignon. Tempranillo is also grown in the Duero region of Portugal where the grapes are commonly blended to make Port. Tempranillo wines may be consumed young, but are regarded as being at their best when aged. There are a multitude of synonyms for Tempranillo depending on where it is grown. Typical descriptors for Tempranillo include berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather, meat and herbs.
