2021 Cesar Marquez
2021 - El Rapolao - SKU: 130321

Produced from a plot of vines planted on iron-rich soils in the village of Valtuille de Abajo.  Mostly Mencia, with the balance Alicante Bouchet and Palomino.  The wine is cool and mineral-laden, with soft, round tannins and good freshness.  Plenty of dark berry fruits and a long, pleasing finish with very good complexity.  94 points, drink now to 2035.  (February 2024).


Other critics:  97 points, Luis Gutierrez (Wine Advocate).
