2019 Finca Torremilanos ‘Ojo Gallo’ Clarete$37.00Tasting Notes ~ ‘Ojo Gallo’, Castellano for ‘rooster eye’ (in other words, what the French call ‘oeil de perdrix’), hearkens back to the traditional clarete style of the region. This light red is a field blend of very old vines of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Bobal, Monastrell, Viura, Albillo and Malvasia co-fermented in cement and raised for 8 months in used barrels before bottling without added sulfur for peak drinkability. Aromas of cranberry, wild cherry, scrub herb, and flowers jump from the glass, with a juicy palate offering prickly acidity and a wisp of tannic dryness. Absolutely delicious with a chill, though it can easily be enjoyed closer to room temperature.

This is 100 percent Tempranillo of average vine age between 10 and 20 years. Fermentation takes 9 days and malolactic occurs in 80 percent stainless steel and 20 percent in barrel. With ripe red fruit flavors with structured tannins, this over-delivers in quality for the price.
