This wine is a varietal bottling of the native Prieto Picudo. And you know what? It's plenty good and very nicely balanced. Early aromas of coffee, subtle curry and tobacco let you know you're not dealing with something generic. And the forward black-fruit palate has grip, good tannins, chocolaty nuances and persistence. Estay is definitely worth a go if you're seeking something different.
