Descendientes de J. Palacios 'Las Lamas'
Las Lamas is always softer and richer on the nose than the other Descendientes wines due to the clay in the soil of this vineyard. The 2020 has an almost raspberry and apple crumble character about its aroma. There is a real fragrance too with a musky scent, making it quite hedonistic.
Gentle and rounded, it nonetheless has a focused purity at the back bringing everything into line. It is so refreshing, despite its weight, with almost with an orange peel lift and flaky tannins that are both very noticeable, yet dissolve easily on the tongue. This is a wine with gorgeous energy and a lovely, long finish. Drink 2024-2031.
