Description

The 2015 Fincas is a 50/50 blend of Caíño and Sousón that managed to keep its alcohol level at 13%, and it also has good acidity, which is quite remarkable for a warm vintage. When I previously tasted this vintage, I found it quite oaky. This time, I found it less oaky, but it's still smoky, spicy and creamy—and I guess it always will be. There are notes of shoe polish and earth, which give it a rustic profile.

Wine, for the most part, is a peculiar beverage and everything form the way the bottle is stored, to the way its opened; the way the cork is pulled, the decanter thats used and the glass its served in, can have an immense effect on the outcome.
