Las Cercas 2014
Las Cercas verdankt seinen Namen den Tapias rund um das Kloster und ist für das technische Team des Weinguts das die Verkörperung des Potenzials des Terroirs La Mejorada. Im Mund kräftig, cremig und ausgewogen mit einem langen und sehr angenehmen Nachgeschmack.

The 2014 Las Cercas is a blend of Tempranillo with 40% Syrah that fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 300-liter French oak barrels for 12 months. This feels riper than Las Norias, with darker fruit aromas and also a darker color. The two varieties were fermented and aged separately, and the blend was done at the end of the élevage. It has some dusty tannins, a slightly powdery sensation and a dry finish. I think the Syrah could be more expressive if it was aged in larger format containers; I find it a little constrained in the barrels. It's still elegant and balanced, but I believe it could be much better. 8,882 bottles and 198 magnums were filled in August 2016.
This is a big and rich style with lots of concentrated fruit and toasted oak. Full-bodied, chewy and fruity. Drink now or hold.
