Tasting Note: 


"The youthful-looking 2013 Macán is pure Tempranillo sourced from a myriad of plots of old vines from the 90 hectares of vineyards they own mostly in the village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. It fermented in oak vats, with 20% of the volume going through malolactic in barrique and an élevage of 14 months exclusively in French oak barrels. The two wines from 2013 share a common characteristic, which is better integrated oak and a subtler mouthfeel. Other than that, the ripeness of the grapes also seemed more moderate, which has resulted in fresher, more elegant wines. Here there is a mixture of red and black fruit, and some notes of dark spices. The palate shows very polished tannins and good balance, more serious than the Clásico. Yields were lower and they also had to sort and select grapes, so quantities are lower at 52,000 bottles in the case of this Macán."- Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
