Grapes: 90% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, average vine age 35 years old. Wine made from the best vintages, hand picked grapes from the estate's select plots. Will develop beautifully over the next 10-12 years.
Aging: 24 months in barrel (French and American oak), minimum 18 months in bottle before release.
Taste: Spices, smoke, licorice and light hints of truffles. Noble tannins with concentrated, very intense flavors resulting from grapes picked at their optimum ripeness. In the mouth it is powerful, robust, and wide, very serious, with great character. Tasty, with good acidity and tannin, promising long life. Very persistent with a long, agreeable, slightly bitter finish.
Color: Intense ruby red with purple hues and blue reflections.
Talking About the Wines:
-The Wine Advocate, Mar '17 gave 93 points to 2012 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. "This is the last vintage and the last wine that contained Cabernet Sauvignon, and from 2014 onward, all their wines are 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)... There are some balsamic hints and minty notes, with good ripeness...This was produced in a way that the wine would last for 20 years, and I'm sure it would. It feels terribly balanced; you'd never say this wine is 14% alcohol."
-International Wine Report, May '16 gave 92 points to 2012 Viña Pedrosa Reserva.
-International Wine Report, May '16 gave 93 points to 2011 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. "...this wine starts with aromas of sandalwood, roasted figs, nutmeg and boysenberry with suggestions of bacon fat. There are flavors of red currant, cassis, Mandarin orange rind and tar. Lovely balance and weight with lingering berry and citrus driven finish."
-Wine & Spirits Magazine, June '16 gave 90 points to 2011 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. "The Pérez Pascuas family produces tight and austere tempranillo from the chalky soils in their high-altitude vineyards of Pedrosa. Red fruit and floral notes prevail in this reserva, rising above the sweet spicy undertone of oak. It feels fresh, edgy with acidity and enough structure to match morcillas de Léon."
