Luis Gutiérrez The Wine Advocate:
"There is yet another red, the 2016 Simeta, a single-vineyard Arcos (a variety
with a long cycle) from a plot planted in 1970 on sand and clay soils. The
grapes fermented with 60% full clusters, with the last of the fermentation in
clay amphorae, where it rested for eight months followed by two months in
glass demijohns. Arcos is sometimes called Arco and other similar names, and
they all seem to be the same variety. Apparently, it's an autochthonous grape,
and 100 years ago some 70% of the plantings were of this grape. It's a longcycle
variety (ripens later than the Monastrell), with thick skins, very resistant
to rot, very apt for the Mediterranean climate. There is good ripeness, in a
northern Rhône way, juicy and keeping the freshness. At times, it also
reminded me of some reds from Ribeira Sacra (Lousas from Envínate) or a
Garnacha from Gredos (Comando G), but it also had a Mediterranean accent. I
found this fascinating, juicy and tasty. 1,010 bottles were filled in July 2017"
