Tasting Notes

More Bordeaux grapes (30%) than most. 70% Tempranillo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
More orange at the rim that the other wines from the 1960s. Less concentrated and structured! Broad and sweet but without the nerve and framework of the 1964, say. A little more tamed, softer and less distinctive. But very sweet and mild and friendly. I’d love to see this next to a 1961 bordeaux. Flattering but very lively.
