Finca Allende, Calvario 2006
Miguel-Angel Gregorio's Calvary vineyard was planted in a suitably apocalyptic year, 1945, and the vines are delivering intense minerality. The wine spends 20 months in 100% new French oak. At present, it is dense, with black cherries and plums, and a slick of liquorice and roasted coffee. 19pts/20 (96/100pts)
