Bodegas Dominio Cair - Tierras de Cair Reserva 2012
Bodegas Dominio Cair - Tierras de Cair Reserva 2012 (92 TSW)
During our riberadelduero trip we had a lovely dinner and wine tasting with the wines of Dominio de Cair
Below the story about this new winery and my tasting notes.
In the glass a deep dark ruby red color.
On the medium+ nose aromas of black currants, ripe red berries, cherries, other dark fruits with hints of cigar box, vanilla and violets.
On the palate full-bodied, full and round with soft tannins, intense fruit, licorice, leather and ripe dark fruit. Very long finish. Top!
Bodegas Dominio de Cair is the project completed in 2010 by Juan Luis Cañas, owner of two famous Rioja houses
Bodegas Dominio de Cair is surrounded by very old vineyards near La Aguilera (Burgos).
The Bodega was built under architecture and forms a great contrast with the sometimes centuries old vines that are still used here.
At an altitude of almost 900 meters, 85 hectares are cultivated, 15 of which are own vineyards. Harvesting is done exclusively by hand. During the harvest, the bunches and the individual grapes are checked twice. Before they enter the fermentation tub. Only the healthiest grapes are used.
