2016 Callejo Parajes de Callejo
The Callejo family owns 60 hectares of low yielding Tempranillo vines (Tinto Fino as it is known in Ribera del Duero) ranging in age from 25-70 years. Felix Callejo uses grapes from its Estate only. The grapes are carefully selected and hand picked into small cases of 30 pounds. Carried in small quantities, there is no danger of having the grape skins break and sparking an undesired premature fermentation. The crates are taken directly to the winery, where they go through two selection tables, the second one selecting grape by grape and discarding any imperfect grapes.
What The Critics Say
Winemaker notes on current 2016 vintage
"Intense sight cherry color, with an edging of cardinal tones. The nose is very aromatic, primary, with notes of wild red and black fruit, rosemary, lilac, scrubland, oregano, cinnamon, confectionery notes. The palate is complex and structured, highly integrated wood step fruity, black plum and blueberry, smoked fine, mineral character with a lingering finish."
