Bodegas Lobecasope Ziries 2008
|Region||Castilla y Leon|
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Ziries is 100% Garnacha sourced from an organically farmed 53-year-old vineyard. The wine was naturally fermented with malolactic in French oak followed by 14 months in 500-liter barrels and bottled without filtration. Smoke, earthy minerals, tar, licorice, and black cherry aromas inform the nose of this full-bodied, succulent, surprisingly well-proportioned offering that manages to combine its obvious power with some elegance. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2014 to 2023.
