2016 Perez Pascuas El Pedrosal Crianza (750ml)

Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero, Castilla y Leon, Spain


The textbook 2016 El Pedrosal was cropped from a cooler year that perfectly fit the house style and their preference for harvesting early to keep good acidity in their wines, which makes them fresh and long-lived. However, in 2016 the harvest started later, as the grapes ripened slowly and perfectly. This wine has the balance between ripeness and freshness, power and elegance, with a spicy touch from the oak that is not intrusive. Great freshness, one of the best vintages for this entry-level red from the Pérez Pascuas family. 180,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2018.

A gently earthy and spicy edge to the purple fruit on the nose here. This has a smooth array of ripe, juicy red-berry flavors with spicy oak chiming in across the finish. Drink or hold.
