Bodegas An Negra 2017 75 cl
I sampled the unbottled 2017 reds, including the 2017 AN, the flagship bottling here. It's mostly Callet with some Mantonegro and Fogoneu found in the small vineyards and comes from a dry, early and low-yielding year. The wine I tasted was a sample of the final blend that was taken from barrel and assembled some ten days before I tasted it. I found plenty of luxurious oak aromas—smoke, spices, dark chocolate and toast—with something creamy and a core of ripe berry fruit. The palate was voluptuous and juicy, with creamy and smoky notes, very oaky, in need of some time in bottle. But I think this will always remain oaky. This is a great commercial red that will please many, but I find that the identity of the place and varieties gets lost in all that new oak. 20,000 bottles should be bottled around March-April 2019.
