Two Bottles From Pago De Los Capellanes

A while back I tasted the 2013 Joven Roble at 19 Glas. I liked it a lot and ordered a couple of bottles and also their 2010 Tinto Crianza. Time for a shootout at home!
Info about the estate here.

2013 Joven Roble, Pago de Los Capellanes
The Joven behaves almost identical this time and it doesn´t budge much from one day to another. A young, tight nose with fine notes of blueberry bushes, plums, bonfire and warm tiles. A lovely perfumed note emerges after a while. Very, very good.
The taste is young and focused with a fine structure and sweet plum- and blueberry fruit. A long, steady finish with a inky touch. Needs time. This is a very good wine that probably will be even better in 3-5 years time. Glad that I have a bunch.
91p   (tasted 2015/01)

2010 Tinto Crianza, Pago de Los Capellanes
This 100% Tempranillo beauty (The Joven Roble is also 100% Tempranillo) showcases a deep, high strung, concentrated nose with notes of ripe plums, hoisin sauce, sweet red apples, liquorice, exclusive leather and some fried dill. Very, very fine. Better on day two.
The taste is young, velvety yet firm, with gorgeous notes of plums, sweet red currants, raspberry liquorice, fine leather and chocolate covered cherries. A lovely mouth feel, with some firm tannins showing themselves in the end of the long, long finish. This is a very fine wine in the making, just wait 5+ years.
93p   (tasted 2015/01)

Now I have ordered the 2010 Tinto Riserva - can´t wait!
