Tasting note

An intense bright red. Initial notes of white pepper and freshly chopped wood. These give way to aromas of sandalwood and cedar intermingled with notes of ripe red fruit and floral essences such as lavender. The characteristic acidity of the Graciano varietal, it is rounded, elegant and powerful at the same time, intense and balanced on the palate with a long finish.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate (robertparker.com):

The profile of the 2012 Viña Pomal Vinos Singulares Graciano had a mixture of dark fruit, licorice, graphite and shoe polish with a tendency to provide animal notes. It felt distinctly riper than the memory I had from the 2010. Graciano is not an easy grape, so I'm not surprised if you cannot replicate the results from one given vintage in future years. Here the nose feels a little too ripe, even if the palate keeps good freshness and the tannins are fine grained. A bit of a contradiction between nose and palate. A bit of a question mark. If you're sensitive to leathery reds, this might not be for you. 1,200 bottles.(Luis Gutiérrez) Points: 89. Issue Date: 31/08/2016
