O. Fournier Tinta del Pais, 2007



tasting notes:

“The 2007 O. Fournier is produced in years when Manuel believes there is something more exceptional than the Alfa Spiga. Picked at less than one kilogram per vine and raised in new French and European oak for 20 months, it has a very mellow, sensual bouquet of raspberry, crushed strawberry and cranberry with an underlying minerality. The palate has a sweet entry with vibrant small red berry fruit and a superb citric thread that lends so much tension and vibrancy on the effervescent finish, with hints of blood orange on the aftertaste. Excellent. Robert Parker: 94 points
