Wine Advocate

Produced with grapes from the warmest plot they work for La Vizcaína range, the 2016 La Vizcaína La Poulosa seemed nicely balanced out by a cool growing season. It's showy and aromatic, quite expressive. It has a long maceration after fermenting with 100% full clusters in 5,000-liter oak vats, where the wine matures for the same length of time as the maceration and then is transferred to barrique to complete one year in oak. It's juicy and quite showy with glossy tannins and a round texture. It's a more approachable, commercial style of red. There are some 5,500 bottles.


This east-facing, sunny site on clay soils was planted between 1930 and 1936, during the Second Republic. The wine it produces, another Mencia field blend, uses 100% stems with a short 25-day maceration, and is aged in neutral oak. It has seductive aromas of fine cedar, violets and roses. The palate is very flavoursome and generously plump, full of expressive bramble fruits and an underlying lively line of acid. It's the most immediately approachable of the Vizcaina range.
