An intense red shading to tawny at the rim. A range of different characteristics can be identified on the nose – black cherry fruit, balsamic, leather, tobacco and vanilla oak. Medium to full bodied with real finesse, concentrated red fruit flavours, mellow tannins and a smooth finish.
For Castillo Armado, they blended grapes from their oldest, low-yielding Tempranillo vineyards with those of their younger vines to create a marriage of rich dark fruit flavours with lashings of smooth vanilla and rich cocoa. 12 months in American oak barrels, followed by a further 24 months in the bottle, add a lusciously silken complexity to the blend, which is wonderful with warming stews and char-grilled steaks, not to mention fine Spanish tapas. Drink now or celler for another 2-3 years.
When it comes to top quality aged wine, very few countries in the world can do it like Spain and this is an excellent example of a Gran Reserva that is drinking beautifully now, medium to full bodied with spicy and floral notes, paprika, pimenton, excellent richness and lovely balance and from one of the greatest vintages ever! This is ideal with aged cheeses, beef and of course chorizo. Even though it is drinking very well now, it will also age very nicely for the next 3-4 years.
