2020 La Despensa Boutique Field Blend - 89 PTS - WA

"wa89The red blend 2020 Boutique Field Blend was produced with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Roussanne from organic but not certified vines planted in 2013 that in the warm and dry 2020 ripened thoroughly to 14.5% alcohol but kept good freshness, denoted by a pH of 3.5. It matured in concrete and was bottled unoaked. It's ripe and heady, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and ripe fruit. It's medium to full-bodied with abundant, slightly dusty tannins. Better with food. 5,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2021. - Luis Gutiérrez"

Some sweet currants, raspberries and pomegranate in the forefront followed by a nice touch of bay leaf, graphite and flowers. Juicy and bright on the palate with a medium body and firm and fresh tannins. Very drinkable. 45% grenache, 35% syrah, 15% mourvedre and 5% roussanne. Co-fermented. Enjoy now."
