Characteristics of Cuatro Pasos Black

Cuatro Pasos Black is a red wine produced by Martin Codax, in Cacabelos, León, under the D.O. Bierzo.

This wine is made exclusively with the Mencía grape variety, taken from 80 year old vines on slopes of slate soils which are plowed, with no type of herbicide being used. The harvest is carried out manually using 20kg boxes.

Cuatro Pasos Black is made in stainless steel tanks, with fermentation carried out for 7 days, left to macerate for 25 days with its skins. The wine is then aged for 10 months in American oak barrels.

This is a well concentrated wine, seeking for the maturity of the grape as well as the toasted and spiced nature of the barrel. 

Serve at 16ºC

Tasting notes Cuatro Pasos Black

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.

Production area D.O. Bierzo

Winery Cuatro Pasos

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
