Sangre y Trabajadero, Oloroso


Quite deep blacky mahogany/amber fading to green tinged yellow rim, legs.
Full, quite rich, deep, hints of toast, walnuts, old barrels, quince jelly, implicit sweetness and gentle oxidation, with leathery, savoury and truffley notes suggesting the humidity of the bodega with a trace of tangy dried fruits.
Quite full, tight, fairly young but well flavoured, lots of oxidative, dried fruit and walnut notes, quite tangy and has a little drying tannin at the end, long though.
This wine has an odd name, and as far as I can find out sangre (blood) refers to Calle Sangre (Blood Street) which adjoined the central market in El Puerto de Santa Maria and where the butchers were to be found. The Trabajadero was the part of the Bodegas Cuvillo cooperage on Calle Sangre where the butts for export were branded with the name of the customer. Gutierrez Colosia bought the solera when Cuvillo went under in the 1980’s, retaining most of the original label design. It is sold at about 7 years of age, but has great complexity being an old solera.
