3000 Años 2006 Bodegas Del Rosario
Here's a red wine from the Murcia Tasting at the Astor Center this week, from the Bullas region of Spain, a blend of 60% Monastrell, 35% Syrah, and the other 5% is not indicated on the spec sheet. Aged for 14 months in French oak and 6 months in the bottle, the first image to imprint itself on my senses is that of roasted red meats. The sensation at first is on the nose, and quickly moves to the back of the tongue, and is very pleasant and richly textured. Color is ruby red, and other aromas range from fruits and a floral hint on the nose, to vanilla and oak on the palate with a creamy woody finish.
