Sourced from a single Tempranillo vineyard planted on alluvial Duero soils mixed with gravel and sand. Intense ripe black fruit notes underpinned with elegant smoky, tobacco notes from the wood. Lively, broad, fleshy and expressive on the entry, the wine turns surprisingly supple with fine, ripe tannins. The personality and character of this noble variety shine through on a perfectly balanced finish.

A textbook Tempranillo, the 2015 Pago Negralada has varietal aromas, red fruit, licorice and spices and a classical, velvety and elegant texture with focused and clean flavors, great harmony and a tasty, long finish. This is like an upgraded version of the Selección Especial. It's a good representation of the zone through its gentle tannins that kind of hide the natural power. It very faithfully represents the conditions of the year, the place and the variety. A true, honest Tempranillo. Bravo! There were 37 barriques of this, which filled 10,200 bottles and some large formats. Like all of the 2015s, it was bottled in May 2017.

This red is rich yet focused. The texture is dense, the tannins firm, yet the wine remains expressive, with black cherry, loamy earth, black olive and herb flavors. Juicy acidity keeps this lively. Drink now through 2027. 850 cases made, 100 cases imported.
