La Purisima 'Old Vines' Red Blend 2019
$10.95
James Suckling 93
An excellent blend with 85% monastrell, 10% syrah and 5% garnacha. Deep and glossy with blackberries, wild spices, tar and mineral. Concentrated but not hefty. Juicy, with a medium-to full-bodied palate enveloped by fresh, chalky tannins. Balance is the key here. Delicious now but can hold.

Tasting notes
La Purisima has a gorgeous black cherry color, with good intensity. There is a prevalence of ripe fruit, with hints of vanilla, toast and spicy notes. The nose is clean and complex with many nuances. The palate is fleshy, long and powerful with great fruit and spice on the finish.

Vinification
This wine comes from pristine old vine parcels of sand and limestone with a rigorous selection of vines over 40 years of age. It is harvested by hand during the third week of October. The grapes were left for three days at a low temperature, enabling all the aromas of the Monastrell variety to be drawn out. Fermentation was conducted at a cool temperature followed by a maceration of 14 days, after fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

Vintage
It was a year that was somewhat drier than usual in the autumn season. The winter was cold and dry, with some snow precipitations. The spring was cold and rainy, which caused the vineyards to sprout and grow slowly due to the cold. This delay helped the vineyard withstand the hot and dry summer. The summer and autumn were very hot and dry, which helped to establish good maturation of the fruit for the harvest. The final wines good acidity, lots of fruit and high concentration. The wines selected to age in barrels had a very good wood to fruit balance and great freshness.
