Dominio Dostares, 2006 Tombú

As mentioned in our Bodega Profile of Dominio Dostares, we did have the opportunity to do, yet another, vidcast to close April’s Virtual Tasting of rosé. Although I’m gaining experience being in front of a camera, I can’t say that I feel any more comfortable or fluent. No, instead, I find myself enjoying the tasting maybe at faster pace than one who is both relaxed and at ease, as I exemplify so well in my stellar pronunciation of the varietal Prieto Picudo. However, I challenge any of you to say this varietal 10 times in row successfully!

Enjoy!

EDIT: Typo as pointed out by Sobre Vino: www.dominiodostares.com
and yes Bierzo is in Castilla y Leon!

    Congratulations for the vidcasts. Just two comments on the Tombú Video: – the web site URl is <a href="http://www.dominiodostares.com, “>www.dominiodostares.com, and not what appears as subtitle – Bierzo is not located in Galicia, but in Castilla León which is a different region. Near to Galicia, but not IN Galicia. Regards.

    Thanks Sobre Vino, two mistakes that I didn't edit out…Fortunately Bierzo is the border of Galicia, so we're at least in the right ball park! Thanks for the URL correction…

    I had the chance to taste all the wines from <a href="Dominio ” target=”_blank”>http://todovino.blogspot.com/2007/04/tares-parte-i-lusco-do-mio-y-dominio.html“>Dominio Dostares a week ago with Mario Rico, from the winery. I liked this Tombú although I found it a bit overpowered by its alcohol; great acidity, though, what compensates for some of the alcohol. As it's their first vintage of this wine, I'm sure they will work on this issue in the future. The other wines they are making with Prieto Picudo are very promising: Estay and Cumal. And, above all, I loved the Lusco do Miño Pazo Piñeiro 2005, from Rias Baixas, made from Albariño grapes. An albariño that is at the top three of the region IMHO. Keep the good work,
