Tim Atkin's Rating: 95 points
Deep, dark and intense ruby colour, this powerful wine has blackcurrant and black cherry fruit flavours with hints of violets, cedar and cinnamon. Rich and complex, it has blackberry fruit and dark chocolate on the finish. Harmoniously composed of the five Bordeaux varieties this wine shows a consistent, linear flavor profile with a polished and well-defined finish. This is a wine that is built to last, with an optimal drinking window of 2022-2035.
The name de Compostella means “field of stars” or “compilation of stars”, and it was chosen to reflect the fact that each component of the wine is crafted to stand alone as a world-class varietal wine before blending.
