Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Vara y Pulgar is produced with Tintilla de Rota, the local strain of the red Graciano from Rioja that also makes a red table wine from Tierra de Cádiz and is sourced from 10 year old vines planted next to the Pago Balbaina. The grapes fermented in a combination of stainless steel and cement vats before maturing for one year prior to bottling; 30% in oak vats and the rest in 6,000 liter cement tanks. The wine was then aged in used barriques for eight months. It's a perfumed red with a herbal side (full clusters?), notes of raspberries and cherries, fresh and balsamic with a medium-bodied palate offering clean flavors of red fruit, quite vertical and with a good finish. It is easy to drink. 14,000 bottles produce
