Gregory Perez began his winemaking career at the venerable Cos d’Estournel. With his foundation of great training in Bordeaux, Gregory has brought the to the areas of Tierra de Castilla and Bierzo. The Preto is his new project in Tierra de Castilla, just east of the Bierzo area.
Gregory features the regional specialty grape variety, Prieto Picudo. Prieto Picudo is responsible for lots of rosé wines in its native Castilla y León.
I think this might be the darkest rosé I have had — dense and bright ruby red in color. Cherry, lychee and some jolly rancher on the nose. Fresh, bright fruit of watermelon, pear, cherry, raspberry with some rhubarb and herbs. Medium weight and dense, nice acidity — good purity and precision with some substance on the finish.
