Descendientes de J. Palacios Petalos del Bierzo 2019
The wine is aged in large oak vats for 10 months to give it immediate appeal, while still retaining the estate's signature finesse and restraint.
Wine Advocate 93+ points "Even though 2020 is already hitting the shelves, I also tasted the 2019 Pétalos, a very balanced vintage that shows moderate alcohol and great balance. It is very approachable right now, open aromatically, and despite what the parameters might read, the wine comes through as fresher than 2020. This is a wine produced with around 80% purchased grapes and 20% grapes from their own vineyards. There are notes of berries but also plenty of herbs; it's aromatic, complex, and with very fine tannins. It's a classical continental vintage from Bierzo."
This svelte red shows a polished profile, with black currant, olive and espresso flavors that are fresh and focused. Underpinnings of graphite, herb and anise cascade onto the finish. Drink now through 2026.
