Traslanzas - Tres Cuestas, Cigales, Spain (2018)
Cigales is a little known DO just to the west of Ribera del Duero in the Castilla y Leon region of Spain. At 750m above sea level and from very old vine Tinta del Paìs (Tempranillo) the wine has a deep concentration of red berry fruit with bright acidity to freshen things up. The tannins are quite dense and chewy. Aged in French and American oak barrels for 6 months.
