The 2008 La Vicalanda Reserva seems backward and closed, probably the effect of a cooler year. The color is a saturated, dark red and the nose is initially limited to tertiary aromas of leather, meat and some spices. Balanced, with good acidity, fruit and length. Drink 2014-2018.

Wine maker notes
The vinification process for Viña Pomal Selección Centenario is quite traditional: The grapes are destemmed and crushed and the must then undergoes a moderately long maceration. Once alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are completed the wines are drawn off and gently clarified before being racked into barrels. The wine is aged 14 months in barrels of American oak. During this time the wine is drawn off 2 or 3 times, which clarifies it naturally, doing away with the need for further treatments. After its aging in barrels the wine is left in bottles for two more years before it is brought out on the market.

Technical notes
A perfect pairing with vegetable dishes, rice dishes, cheeses, duck and oily fish.
