Characteristics of Emeritus

Eméritus 2008, which means worthy in Latin, is a red wine made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. The vines are grown in clayey-calcareous soils in the property Dominio de Valdepusa (in Toledo) which belongs to the family of the Marquis of Griñon since 1292. The grapes are manually harvested, desteemed and transferred into the fermentation tanks by gravity. It goes through a long maceration which takes even four or five weeks and an ageing of 20-24 months in new and half-new French oak barrels from Allier in an ageing chamber with air-conditioned. It is a wine for ageing, which will be enjoyable from now and during at least the next 10-15 years. It is recommended to decant it before it is served. In this vintage, the production is limited to 14.400 bottles.
Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Emeritus

Sight Very intense dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Bright wine with abundant, slow-falling tears. Nose This wine shows high-intensity aromas and combines the best of each variety with the nuances provided during the ageing. It is complex, concentrated, expressive and very elegant. Taste In the mouth, this Spanish wine is clean, round and powerful. It shows an excellent tannic structure and a finish marked by the notes of fruit (prunes jam, wild berries) and by its long persistence.
