(93 Points)



221, The Wine Advocate



The first vintage of this wine was made in 1993. The 2012 La Ricolma is a very unique expression of Merlot. Usually this grape offers so much to the nose, but less in terms of structure or firmness in the mouth. In this vintage the opposite is true. The bouquet is more subdued in terms of its dark cherry, blackberry and spice. The palate shows tight tannins, bright acidity and loads of deep cherry flavors. The wine is shapely, delineated and focused in this vintage.



Winery Notes



La Ricolma is made from 100% Merlot grapes especially seclected from prime vineyards and hand-picked when perfectly mature. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks for about 18 days, then racked and pressed. After it is racked once again, the wine is left to mature for 20-22 months in French oak barriques. It is bottled and held for another 6 months before being released.
