88 View from the Cellar The 2016 Viña Jaraba Cosecha is produced from a cépages of eighty percent tempranillo and ten percent each of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. It sees only four months in a combination of French and American oak casks prior to racking into tank and eventual bottling. The wine offers up a very good bouquet of black cherries, cassis, a bit of cigar smoke and a nice base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and shows good mid-palate depth, with a bit of backend tannin and good length and grip on the finish. This is not overly complex, but it has depth and plenty of personality and sells for the princely sum of ten dollars a bottle here in the US, so it is an excellent value! 2018-2025+.
Issue #75 – May/June 2018
87 International Wine Review A blend of 80% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. This bottling has lots of upfront fruit flavors with toasty, earthy notes. It has a soft attack, medium weight, but lacks depth of flavor on the mid-palate and has a short finish.
