Suertes del Marqués 7 Fuentes Valle de la Orotava Listan Negro-Tintilla Blend 2015

$17.95

The 2015 7 Fuentes, their entry-level village red from a forward vintage, is mostly Listán Negro with some 10% Castellana Negra grapes sourced from 25 different vineyards of different ages, ranging between ten and 200 years of age...It's the textbook volcanic Listán Negro character, with the black peppercorns, dry roses and wet pumice. The palate is approachable, with great freshness and length... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

My first Tenerife wine. Listan negro is the dark-skinned version of Palomino of Sherry, and Tintilla is probably Grenache. I was blown away with the price-vs-quality of this wine which was balanced and aromatic and revealed interesting notes on nose and palate including candied fruit, raspberry, herbs, white pepper, and a moderate oak profile.

Sorry but this just hits to close to home ... On the nose is spicy but flowery with that smell so characteristic of the wet and dark cellars of my childhood. Wood, tabaco, jasmine, pepper, clove... in the palate high tannins with a well balanced acidity and a long mineral finish with a twist. Black berry, dark cherry, tea, spices, minerals, coffee, smoke, pine and retama ... What a treat ! ... Amazing wine.
