2016 Benjamin Romeo Contador
This TOP wine is made from 95% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha. The Contador is a compact, tight wine. It is still young with the typical aromas that only the very best can produce and that you can only find in a very limited number of top wines such as an Alabaster or a Pingus. However, this is a totally different wine and is much more akin to a beautiful Burgundy Nuits-St-Georges. The Contador has very refined tannins and a subtle acidity. Ripe red fruit, truffle, cocoa, coffee, minerals, balanced tannins and an impressive aftertaste. Luis Gutiérrez of the Wine Advocate write " This is truly another wordy. It has the balance, stuffing, acidity and minerality to have a long life in bottle, but its exuberant youth is difficult to resist"
