Telmo Rodriguez - Bodegas Lanzaga

2010 Lanzaga

BLEND | 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha and 5% Graciano

VINEYARDS | Organic/biodynamic bush vines from the Atalaya, Majadales, Arroyo la Losa, Pasocastillo and Soto vineyards in the cool Lanciego zone. At an altitude of 500-600 meters, on plateaus over continental Miocene sandstone strata with flat shallow soils - stony, calcareous and silty textured with low fertility and low water retention capacity.

WINEMAKING | Hand picked with wild yeast primary fermentation and malolactic in concrete tank followed by 14 months aging in foudre and 225L barrel.

“The nose delivers an array of ripe red fruit and floral scents, along with hints of allspice, pipe tobacco and smoky minerals. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet, concentrated black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that tighten up in the mid-palate. Combines power and finesse with a deft hand and finishes spicy and very long, with supple tannins building slowly and adding grip.” - Josh Raynolds
