Bodegas y Vinedos Arnaldo 'PSI' Tempranillo 2012
Smoky purple fruits, lifted red cola over meat glaze and deep woodily-wizened aromas of old vines. Beautifully earthy to smell and taste, full and bright, laden with dark cherry fruit. A fine, elegant and polished Ribera. Smoky purple fruits in a meat'n'beet register, lifted red cola over meat glaze, with a pink peppercorn lift and the deep woodily-wizened smell of old, gnarly vines. Gently, beautifully earthy to smell and taste, densely fruited, it's full and bright, not heavy, laden with dark cherry fruit - a fine, elegant and polished Ribera. Stylistically straddling Burgundy and Barolo - soft and juicy at front leading into wonderful old-vine fruit tannin, with gentle acid/spice closure at palate's end. Beautiful deep, subtle palate, with wonderful fruit tannin, spice and expression of vine age. The most subtle of extraction and wood-ageing regimes makes it all possible - a great lesson to those all around the globe who routinely maul old vine gear with 'heroic winemaking'.
