Tasted by
Sarah Jane Evans MW

Proof of the company’s own observation: these wines take a long time to evolve. But as the 2014 proves so well, once they do begin to evolve, they can be glorious. This 2016 is still a buttoned up infant, bursting with dark, dense character – definitely a wine to cellar. As ever with Finca El Otero, the tannin is very well controlled. My score is provisional; it will undoubtedly go up in five years’ time.
