"The 2009 Dignus (50% Tempranillo, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon) also exhibits a Pomerol-like perfume of mocha, black cherries, mulberries and cola. There is lots of richness, sweet, well-integrated tannins, full body and a hefty, lush mouthfeel. It should continue to drink beautifully for another 4-5 years." ~ RP

" Barón de Magaña an estate-bottled wine made by Bodegas Viña Magaña in the Navarra DO, just northeast of Rioja. Spanish wine aficionados who consider Navarra strictly a source for bulk wines would do well to reflect on what owner Juan Magaña has accomplished. Thirty years ago, Juan had a vision. After researching the best wines in the world, he decided to grow Bordeaux grapes in Navarra. He bought Merlot cuttings from a nursery that sold to a famous châteaux in St. Emilion and Pomerol, and most notably the hallowed Château Pétrus. Starting as a pioneer in Navarra, over the years Juan’s bodega has become a reference point for quality in the region. The 100-hectare (247 acre) estate is located just south of the Ebro River. With a focus on the Merlot grape, Barón is the most serious of the winery’s lower-end bottlings. At once, Baron shows power and bright flavors with no green characters, with a structure that is integrated and harmonious. The southern district of Navarra has limestone that imparts characters of minerality and acidity that are unique to this place. Of the varieties grown on the estate, Merlot is best able to capture the minerality of the soil. "~ Winery notes
