The 2019 La Poza de Ballesteros is a powerful and ripe wine with 14.66% alcohol and ripe fruit, volume and round and dense tannins. The exposition to the afternoon sun and the deeper soils of this 1.18-hectare plot of vines planted in 1960 on deep brown soils give the grapes more ripeness, and this wine is always a riper expression of Tempranillo. It has notes of black fruit and tobacco, and it’s round and generous, more voluptuous, with round tannins and instant gratification. It’s expressive and direct, quite gentle. 4,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2028
