Product Description

Abadia Retuerta Seleccion Especial 2009, Excellent depth of color, reflecting the wine’s young age. It is a garnet, black cherry hue. The aromas are find and clean. Jammy black fruits on the nose (wild blackberries, plums, morello cherries, strawberries, raspberries). Very mineral and balsamic, typical of the Duero terroir, with floral hints (violets and lilacs). Very spicy, revealing notes of nutmeg and subtle hints of cloves and bay leaf, with touches of chocolate, toffee and licorice coming through in the background. A firm mouth-feel, fresh, savory and balanced. Elegant tannins, superb length and a lingering finish enhance the wine’s great individual character, without taking away any of its harmony.

Blend: 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah

    Wine & Spirits“Sard’n del Duero is just outside Ribera del Duero, where Abadia Retuerta’s wines share the same power and ripeness of the neighboring appellation. This wine’s notes of figs and chestnuts merge with flavors of blackberries in liqueur. The powerful tannic structure carries that formidable weight like the pillars of a bridge.”

    The Wine Advocate“These are impressive wines, although in terms of value for money, I would head straight to the 2009 Seleccion Especial, a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. It has a rounded, iodine-tinged bouquet with great purity and panache, the oak seamlessly integrated with scents of black coffee developing over time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy texture, crisp acidity and very fine tannins. It has a velvety, caressing texture with blackberry, cassis and espresso towards the precise, supple finish. This is an accomplished, flavor-packed wine…”
