    The 2014 El Pedrosal, which is sold in some markets under the brand Cepa Gavilán, is pure Tinto Fino (aka Tempranillo) from 15- to 25-year-old, head-pruned vines planted on soils rich in clay and limestone at 844 meters altitude. It matured in oak barrels for one year. The nose reminded me of the Riberas from the 1990s, with those aromas of orange peel, a touch of aromatic herbs (they always have a balsamic side), and wild berries with those spicy notes of the (good) American oak. They consider 2014 among the top five vintages of the last 27 years that José Manuel Pérez has produced. It's a year with elegance, balance and freshness. They started harvesting one week before the majority of producers, which provided great freshness in all the wines. They keep their yields low, so their grapes ripen earlier without dropping the acidity. This could very well be the finest vintage of El Pedrosal/Cepa Gavilán. Drink date: 2017-2024. Score - 91.
