Vintage 2010

13.5% vol

Region:  D.O. Vino de la Tierra de Extremadura

Varieties: Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah

Notes: A pleasant medium body wine from bodegas Santa Cecilia located in the western Spain in the region of Extremadura. Soft and subtle easy drinking wine, a bit like a light Rioja, lacks a little bit of depth, complexity and concentration for my taste. At this price point is slightly expensive as there are other wines I would choose over this but not bad to use as a casual BBQ wine. Nine months in American and French oak which is noticeable but not overpowering, nice blend between wood and light fruit. Has notes of chocolate and balsamic with aroma of slightly toasted peppery wood. Probably wouldn’t buy again not because it’s bad just not to my preference.

Por este precio es un poco caro, hay otros vinos que elegiría antes que este, pero no está mal para una barbacoa casual. Nueve meses en barrica de roble americano y francés, que se nota pero no en demasía, agradable mezcla entre madera y fruta. Tiene notas de chocolate y balsámico con aroma a madera tostada ligeramente picante. Probablemente no lo volvería a comprar, no porque sea malo simplemente no es de mi preferencia.
