Artadi Pagos Viejos 2008




The balanced production of our old vineyards, together with a limited yield and careful ageing, result in the authentic spirit of this wine. This wine is of intense colour, complex in hte nose, fully structured with a long after taste.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Pagos de Viejas was selected from three of the estate's finest and most elevated sites with all of the vines over 75 years of age. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. Deeply colored, it offers up a superb nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Rich, layered, and beautifully proportioned, this lengthy effort will evolve for 5-7 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2028+.
