Product Description
Details

An amazingly priced Spanish red wine from Bodega Laus, Laus Tinto Reserva is made solely from Cabernet Sauvignon.

Situated in Barbastro, Huesca, DO Somontano, at roughly 400 metres of altitude,  the vineyards have limestone and rocky soils with very low levels of organic matter. Climate is Mediterranean-Continental, with low rainfall and lots of sunlight.

Hand-harvested in mid September, the grapes were first cold macerated for 2 weeks before going through alcoholic fermentation. During the process, punch-downs and pump-overs were performed on a regular basis.

After completing malolactic fermentation, Laus Tinto Reserva 2016 was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for 13 months.

Finally, this reserva red wine was bottled and aged for a further months before hitting the market.

It is advisable to decant this red wine from Somontano at least 30 minutes before drinking to fully experience it.

Appearance

Nose

This varietal Cabernet Sauvignon is scented and nuanced, with aromas of crème de cassis and raspberries over a toasted and smokey background, with a hint of herbs and dry earth.

Palate

This reserva from bodega Laus has some savoury, fine-grained tannins, a smooth texture and a linear acidity. Lots of flavour and good concentration, with wild berries, herbs and fine wood, ending with a smokey and earthy note.

Our personal opinion

The red wine Laus Tinto Reserva 2016 is an astounding value.
