Characteristics of Cuatro Pasos

Cuatro Pasos is a red wine from Bierzo produced by the Martin Codax winery.

The winery, located in the Valle del Salnés (Pontevedra), is characterized by its connection and affirmation of Galician culture, it is no coincidence that takes the name of a famous Galician troubadour.

Cuatro Pasos are 100% made from Mencia. The grapes come from vineyards with an average age of 80 years from 4 properties located in 4 different towns: Otero, Hornija, Corullón and Valtuille. The vineyards are planted on slate soils in the high areas of the Bierzo.

For its preparation, a first fermentation of the must in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures occurs. After this process, the wine ages for 2 months in barrels of French and American oak.

Cuatro Pasos gets its name from the spectacular bear tracks that were once found in one of the fields where Mencia vineyards are cultivated.

Tasting notes Cuatro Pasos

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 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
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.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.
Sight Intense medium-high garnet colour with violet highlights. Nose Moderate, aromas of toast and black fruit with lactic notes on mineral background. Taste Nice and tasty entry. Good acidity and well integrated tannins. Silky, varietal and a medium-long finish.

Sight Bright and intense cherry colour, with purple reflections. High robe. Nose Balanced and pleasant aromas. Its abundant notes of juicy red fruit and floweres get mixed with expressive hints of spices and soft toasted aromas. A light mineral touch and hints of tobacco are also noticed. Taste A tasty and very nice Bierzo wine. Gradually, it coats the mouth with fleshy notes of creamy fruit. It shows a good acidity and soft, slightly sweet and well integrated tannins. Good finish with marked fruity aromas.
Sight Intense cherry red colour with violet edges. High robe and good tears. Nose At first nosing, a good load of notes of fruit is noticed which, along with the typical flowers, herbal hints and expressive spicy notes, forms a very enjoyable bouquet. When it opens up, the spices and toasted notes provided by the wood gain ground. Subtle mineral background with notes of damp earth. Taste A nice, tasty and light wine which gently fills the mouth with fruit and some mineral notes. Balanced and medium bodied wine with integrated tannins. Good finish, which leaves a very fruity aftertaste. A good sample to know the variety Mencia better.
Sight Intense cherry red with purple reflections. Good legs. Nose Medium-high aromatic intensity. Good burden of red fruits accompanied by subtle notes of toasted wood and vanilla with some floral and herbaceous hints. Taste At the attack, this wine shows a good strength and power.

    01/03/17 Cuatro Pasos 2014 Delicious, amazing wine. All the lovely fruitiness of priorats & riojas but a much smoother finish. We found this wine by accident and would highly recommend. Great wine for a great price

    18/02/18 Cuatro Pasos 2015 A beautiful red wine which I discovered whilst visiting Mallorca a few years ago. Not readily available in UK so need to import from Spain. Very smooth with a good body. A pleasant change from the more popular Riojas. My wife and I love this wine.

    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.
