Stephen Tanzer's IWC
Inky ruby. Explosively perfumed nose offers an array of black and blue fruits, flowers and spices. Sweet black raspberry and blueberry flavors coat the palate, with smoky minerality providing lift. This sweet, fleshy wine closes with very good cut and smooth, harmonious tannins, leaving a strong spicy quality behind.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 2010 Veraton is 100% old vine Grenache grown in vineyards planted between 1910 and 1967. Aged in a combination of French and American oak for 17 months prior to being bottled unfiltered, it is one of the world’s greatest Grenache values. Lots of crushed, chalky minerality intermixed with explosive notes of kirsch liqueur, lavender and spring flowers are found in this dense, full-bodied, pure red. Some background oak is noticeable, but the full-bodied, lavish concentration of fruit and glycerin are stunning and mouth-saturating. It should drink well for a decade.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Spain
Sherry and Rioja have long been the best-known Spanish wines outside Spain, but Cava, Rivera del Duero and other wine regions are gaining notoriety. Tempranillo and Grenache (Garnacha) are the primary red grapes used, while Albariño and Chardonnay lead white wine production. Spanish wines are aged at the winery and, contrary to most winemaking philosophies, are released only when they are ready to drink. Spanish wines are usually aged in Spanish, French or American oak, and tend to be big and ripe thanks to the warm dry climate. View all our items from Spain
