Baigorri – 12/06/2012

Rosado 2011 (50% tempranillo, 50% garnacha)
Bright red intense colour. Some earthy savoury notes, slightly smoky, cured meats, roasted onions. Texture, some fullness of fruit, dark red fruits, plenty of depth but not sweet.

Blanco Fermentado en Barrica 2009 (95% viura, 5% malvasia)
Ripe tropical almost like varnished oak chips (??), honeyed, citrus notes. Quite warm, very textural, retaining some freshness and acidity, quite precise and intense, honey wax.

Crianza 2008 (90% tempranillo, 5% garnacha)
Dark earthy red ripe currants, soft full freshness, good clarity, American oak softens and gives the tannins a nice cream sweetness, vibrancy and approachability. Classic tempranillo wine.

Reserva 2006 (100% new barrel malolactic and ageing for 18 months)
Dark florals, savoury, earthiness, density, some interesting Turkish delight elements, lovely and full, great depth concentration of fruit, nicely integrated oak, plenty of potential for ageing.

Garnacha 2009
Quite dense black fruits, crushed violets, amazing concentration, very full and volumous, velvety generous texture, vibrant fresh fruits, chewy and delicious.

De Garage 2007 (probably tempranillo)
Insanely well structured, very tight focused tannins, finesse and intensity, concentrated, warmer vintage, would be interesting to see the 2008. Youthful, amazing quality from the old vines, very low yields providing depth and concentration.
