Red wine lovers dream: clove and tobacco, bold oak finish; 60 years old vins
The Diez-Caballero Vendimia Seleccionada is made only in the years of harvests considered "excellent" by the family. Harvested by hand from 60+ year old Tempranillo vines on a single plot in Elciego, this wine has aged 14 months in new French and American oak barrels , before going directly to the bottle. The palate reflects of fresh black cherry after a hefty amount of smoke, juicy black currant, pipe tobacco, slightly peppery. Integrated tannins, medium full body, lush texture, long finish. Note: we recommend decanting this wine prior to serving.
