General information

Not even in the Labastida mountain range during winter extreme temperatures so typical of the geographical point where we are were reached. We go through the fields on April 3 and see how the vines are thinner than usual, this is normal after last year's generous harvest and after the dry autumn-winter that we have had in our town.

We planted ourselves suddenly on April 27 and 28, black days in the region where the now famous “frost of 17” devastated our vineyards when it could do the most damage, just after sprouting.

Tasting Notes El Buscador

Color   dark, intense and bright garnet with a trim on this occasion blacker than usual that announce the optimal moment of consumption On the nose French oak predominates, making it more interesting and complex, from the moment we uncork it, we appreciate the very ripe black fruit in perfect harmony with the soft aromas of coffee, black pepper, coconut, cinnamon and licorice.

In the mouth It is shown from the first friendly and creamy drink, with a lot of volume probably caused by the contribution of Nómada of the same vintage, in its long journey the timid tannins of the predominantly caramelized French oak emerge with the aging in American second wine barrels, which they undoubtedly preserve the fruit delicately.
