Huerta De Albala Barbazul 2012
|Brand||Huerta De Albala|
Wine SpectatorThis lively red shows expressive flavors of cherry, red plum, bramble, baking spices and vanilla. Generous, with good density and juicy acidity, this is modern in structure and distinctive in character. Drink now through 2018. 1,500 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of black-olive juice, animal hide and seashell fail to offer much fruit, even with swirling. A tough palate shows no clear point of entry, while herbal black-fruit flavors draw in rather than expand on the finish. This is a Syrah-led blend with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano, aka Tintilla de Rota. It hails from Cádiz.
