Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, some firm tannins and a taste of red currant and cherry. But for the price, it`s not showing any signs of maturity. A bit hot and heavy, especially for a 2007 Cava. There`s not much fruit character to the cherry pie, berry and cola flavors, but on the quality, with an astringency and biting tannins. Bitter orange rind and wood burn precede a peppery finish. Cherry, raspberry and cola aromas are regular butno different from other Zins released this year. And the palate rings with extracted fruit, but it`s not sour or tart like a Zinfandel. So it`s not even very hard or tannic. And the flavors are thin, like a mixed drink. Made from biodynamically grown grapes, this wine is crushed in a dark, spicy style.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, slightly funky tannins and a solid core of dry tannins. So give it another year and drink with your favorite Chard. A blend of Arinto and Antão Vaz, this is an obviously young wine. That means the nose and palate are now forming, and the black-currant fruit flavors are still subdued by the aggressive texture. It will develop with some time, but drink from 2016. In the past we said the enemy of El Enemigo was too much oak; that heavy oak character persists, but it is more behind the ripe berry aromas, loud acidity and dry tannins. So drink this wine sooner rather than later. Part of this fine estate`s estate blend is made entirely from Chardonnay. In the mouth, it`s clean and sophisticated, with pineapple, orange and yeasty flavors.
