Veratón está elaborado a partir de garnachas de entre 30 y 50 años y tiene una crianza de 16 meses. Se trata de un vino con una atractiva colección de notas balsámicas, de chocolate y frutos negros, muy cálido en la boca y de final muy grato. Si le damos algo de tiempo en botella, la Garnacha se convierte en algo realmente provocador y estimulante.

At once dark and fragrant with a ton of black fruit, but a ton more than that, too. This concentrated garnacha has a lot of drive and carries its tannic power with confidence. Long finish that is simultaneously bold and subtle. Drink or hold.
From vines planted in the 1970s and 1980s, the entry-level 2015 Veratón is pure Garnacha fermented in stainless steel tanks with neutral yeasts and aged in mostly new (and 20% used) French and American oak barrels for 16 months. It's a good representation of the house style, with a heady and ripe nose, generous spice and smoke and a warm finish. It's full-bodied, concentrated and very balsamic but is also the more balanced and approachable of the offerings here. The fruit is black, and there are plenty of sweet spices and smoke. The palate is full-bodied, dense and concentrated, with pungent and generously oaked flavors. As Parker said, it is not for consumers looking for shy, restrained and delicate wines; it's clearly for fans of the style. 112,800 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2017.
