Artadi La Poza de Ballesteros 2014
"As with the rest of the 2014s, the bottled 2014 La Poza de Ballesteros was quite faithful to the sample I tasted before it was bottled. In this case, the wine continued showing the riper character and more Mediterranean profile of the vineyard. As with most of the single-vineyard wines from the vintage, it was aged in oak barriques for 12 months. The oak feels a little more evident (Carlos explained they used a little more new oak for it), and this is a wine with more fruitÑLa Poza behaves better in cooler years like 2013. This is rounder, lusher and juicy with structure, more volume and it's quite open and expressive. 5,000 bottles were filled."
