Absum Collection D.O. Somontano
A new collection of wines with the Somontano Designation of Origin has just made its appearance on the market, the Irius Winery presents Absum Collection. A new line of wines that we have a special interest in tasting, since this D.O. It is one of our favorites.
There are two wines presented in this line, a Tempranillo and a Merlot made in wooden vats and aged in new French oak barrels. They are two crianza reds from the 2004 harvest that aim to conquer the palate of the most demanding winemakers. We will briefly mention the tasting note of the winery itself, since we prefer to do the tasting ourselves and express our opinion, but to get an idea this information can be very useful.
Absum Collection Merlot 2004 and Tempranillo, curiously, present an identical tasting: They have a ruby red color, with aromas that evoke red fruits and some spicy and mineral connotations. Balanced and fruity, they will provide us with complexity and persistence on the palate.
We would like you to share with us your tasting and personal opinion about these wines.
