WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Predicador 2013 shows a cherry red good intensity and very bright colorThe nose shows red and black fruits, rich woods, scrubland memories, spices and minerals notes, showing great complexity. The palate is powerful, fresh and ripe, with volume, full of fruity sensations. The well balanced between acidity and sweet tannin gives structure and persistence. The wine is very fine, delicate, very large and pleasant.

TASTING NOTES:

A firm and silky wine with bright acidity and ripe fruit. Very linear and balance. A wine that makes you want to drink. Tempranillo with 10% garnacha.

-James Suckling, 93 pts.

Different from the rest of the reds from the portfolio, the 2013 Predicador is perhaps showing the difficulties of the vintage with an Atlantic profile and some herbal notes that for a minute transported me to Bordeaux. The Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes fermented in small oak vats and matured in French barriques and resulted in a creamy wine with juicy fruit and very good integration of the wood. It is tasty, supple, approachable and has a good finish.
