The 2020 was not produced, and this label was discontinued and replaced by a new wine with a different concept (La Tendida), so I only tasted the 2019 Vino de Finca, a blend of 75% Monastrell and 25% Garnacha from this unusual vintage. It fermented with 25% to 30% whole clusters, which resulted in a wine with 14.5% alcohol. As is usually the case here, the wine matured in a combination of used 500-liter barriques and 5,000-liter oak vats for one year. There is a faint sensation of ripeness, and it feels richer than other wines, a little balsamic and medicinal, and it has some dusty tannins. This is a wine that still follows a more powerful profile, like previous vintages.
