The 2011 Arrocal Seleccion is pure Tempranillo with ripe, minty aromas. It is quite showy and attractive with balsamic notes of cola nut, quite marked by the oak. It has enough intensity of fruit to keep the oak in the background, both in nose and palate. The tannins are polished and plump, and there seems to be enough acidity. It feels remarkably fresh for a warm vintage like 2011.
