Abadia Retuerta 2013 Pago Valdebellón Cabernet Sauvignon (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León)

Heavily herbal spicy leafy aromas are green like cool-climate Cab Franc, and then a massive bolt of oaky char takes over. This Cabernet Sauvignon is hard, drying and tough on the palate. Herbal roasted black-fruit flavors are smothered in burnt oak, while this is blackened but green tasting on the finish. Ripeness of fruit was clearly an issue in this cool vintage. Michael Schachner
