Grapes: 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) coming from the single vineyard, La Navilla, with chalky clay soil, and an altitude of 2,700 feet above sea level, their highest vineyard. The average age of the vines is 30 years old. An exceptional terroir, where the authentic clone of Tinto Fino, grafted from the old vinyards of the Pérez Pascuas brothers, reaches its maximum extent, and singularity.
Aging: 20 months in French oak barrels, minimum of 12 months in bottle.
Taste: Good structure, dense, concentrated, with noble tannins of great quality, round, and without any sharp points. Very complex aromas, fruit, smoke, spicy notes, with a great balance between the fruit, and the oak. Its toasted aromas, and minerality, give it a very original sensation, with a good intensity, and elegance.
Color: Cherry red, very vivid, intense, and bright.
Talking About the Wines:
-Robert Parker Wine Advocate, “the Independent Consumer’s Bimonthly Guide to Fine Wine” gave 94 points to 2014 Viña Pedrosa “La Navilla” Reserva. “… This is extremely perfumed, a little more modern if you like, with perfect integration of the oak with the wine, the nose is tremendously harmonious… this wine when I first put my nose in the glass, it continued opening up, and developing. It has the very fine tannins, that are part of the house style, and the lively mouthfeel of the 2014's…”
-The Wine Advocate, Mar '17 gave 93 points to 2012 Viña Pedrosa "La Navilla" Reserva. "... 2012 Viña Pedrosa La Navilla Reserva is sourced from the vineyard that surround the winery, in the village of Pedrosa de Duero, planted some 40 years ago on sand-rich soils... identified as a vineyard, that year after year, produces fresher wines with very good acidity, and plenty of balsamic aromas. This 2012 is truly impressive, among the freshest from the vintage."
