Taganan Tinto, Envinate 2021

Tasting Notes

There's an herbal and reductive twist in the 2021 Táganan Tinto, from the black basalt soils of Taganana. The palate is austere and stony, very different from the 2022 I tasted next to it. In 2021, they started bottling this wine after nine or 10 months of élevage, before the following harvest. 4,000 bottles were filled in July 2022.

Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, November 2023

Envínate’s 2021 Táganan Tinto is another absolutely stellar vintage of this signature bottling. As readers may recall, this wine is made from an ancient parcel of vines that no one has a record of what was planted, so it is a classic old vine field blend of classic red varieties from Tenerife, with the oldest vines more than a century and a half in age! The 2021 Táganan Tinto is quite black fruity on the nose this year, offering up scents of dark berries, chicory, bonfire, cigar ash, volcanic soil tones, sea salts and a lovely array of botanicals in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and sports superb depth of fruit at the core, with bright acids, excellent balance and grip and a long, impeccably balanced and soil-driven finish. This is a
great vintage for this bottling! 2031-2065+.
