"The 2008 Reserva Especial is equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% each Tempranillo and Garnacha. It shows more spices and shy notes of developed bouquet, but still feels quite young and unevolved, harmonious and balanced, with well-integrated oak and enough fruit, acidity and tannins. Drink 2014-2018. A textbook blend. "
"Pago de Larrainzar is more than a wine. It is the soul of our family and a tribute to the beautiful land that has belonged to our family for the last 150 years. Only a rigorous selection of our best grapes makes up this wine, which is full of elegance, character and
complexity. After being harvested by hand, the different varieties are fermented and aged separately, using the best French oak barrels. Only then we create the final blend, to achieve a perfect balance, where the fruit always plays the leading role..
Medium layer and nice cherry red color. In this fifth harvest, we can already speak of a "flavor of the house", which highlights the great balance between soil-grape-ageing. Chalky mineral notes in the mouth, with very fresh red fruit on a background of toasted wood. The elegance we can clearly see in this wine, is also a feature of Larrainzar. Long and pleasant finish." - Winery
