THE NV EDIÇÃO LIMITADA 6033 MagnumAragonez Syrah Alicante Bouschet
- Bottle size
- 1500 mL
A blend of reserve quality wines from vintages 2010/2011/2012, based on Aragonéz, Syrah, and Alicante Bouschet. The palate is rich with layers of velvety fruit, dense and compact, with a long finish. A deeply complex wine resulting from a blend of three different vintages and three different varieties.
The NV Edição Limitada 6033, HOWARD’S FOLLY is a blend of three vintages (2010, 2011 and 2012–the "20s" adding up to 60 and the 10, 11 and 12 adding up to the 33; hence, the "6033" in the name). It is an equal blend of Syrah (used French oak), Alicante Bouschet (used American oak) and Aragonéz (new French oak). It comes in at 15% alcohol. Adding a bit of concentration to the 2011 Reserva (also reviewed), this also gains the edge in complexity of flavor, although not in freshness. This leans more to richness. Sweet-edged on opening, with tightness on the finish, this still demonstrates both finesse and balance, as well as that intensity of flavor. It improved very dramatically with 60 to 90 minutes of air. It became a very different and far superior wine.
This is a delicious and rich red that gives you a decadent and opulent flavor of blueberries, tar, cedar and nuts. Full body and very soft and velvety tannins. A whimsical blend of three vintages: 2010, 2011 and 2012.
