The 2011 Pago Negralada is Tempranillo from a single-vineyard (pago means plot in Spanish), and seems to be the ripest of all the 2011s. Negralada is planted at 740 meters altitude, the lowest of them all and it ripened extremely well that year. The aromas are very ripe, with notes of prunes, damsons hinting on raisins and traces of spicy oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied, ripe and lush, with moderate acidity. It’s still a bit tannic.
