La Cueva del Contador by Benjamin Romeo is 100% Tempranillo matured for 18 months in new French oak and produced from 1.5kg of fruit per vine. There were just 8,000 bottles produced for the whole world.
Almost opaque, plum-cherry in colour and velvet textured, it clings to the glass. The nose is gorgeous, rich in sweet, almost caramelised cherries, complemented by hints of pomegranate and fresh herbs, enriched by layers of mocha cream. The palate is luxurious in texture, full and ripe with beautiful fruit supported by rounded tannins, all complemented by hints of wild herbs, crushed stone minerals and bitter chocolate, all laced by oak.
