The 2016 Las Viñas de Eusebio is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano that has great finesse and complexity. It matured in a 1,600-liter oak foudre and 225- and 500-liter oak barrels to make enough wine to fill some 7,000 bottles. It has a quite classical profile, with a mixture of fruit and spice (some new oak was used in the élevage), and in a cool year like 2016, it should have all the ingredients to develop nicely in bottle. It has chalky tannins from the limestone soils, which adds to that serious and classical profile. It might even need a little more time in bottle to polish the tannins a little bit. This fermented mostly destemmed. 94/100.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 94/100Lurid ruby. Highly perfumed on the nose, displaying intense red and blue fruit and floral scents that are complemented by exotic spice and smoky mineral nuances. Stains the palate with concentrated raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that become sweeter and livelier with air. Rich but distinctly elegant, showing excellent clarity and finishing sweet, spicy and very long, with fine-grained tannins and an echo of candied flowers.
