Tasting Notes:

"The 2014 Contraste Tinto is mostly a field blend from 40-year-old vines, with some separated grapes, aged for 18 months in French oak (third and fourth use). Over the years, this second label has become increasingly interesting on its own. This is a rather respectable performance at this price level in a very shaky vintage. It is actually impressive in structure, showing fine grip on the finish and a bright feel. The mid-palate has respectable depth, too. What it seems to lack, at least now, is the typical flavor and vivid fruit that the bottling often has. Perhaps it will open more. I doubt it will ever be the best of the brand, but you can't really go wrong at this price for a serious house pour. It will be a fine food wine." - Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate
