94Vinous / IWC

... Exotically perfumed, pungent bouquet displays an array of red fruit, floral and spice scents, along with notes of vanilla, mocha, fresh bay and pipe tobacco. Broad, palate-staining redcurrant and cherry compote flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and show a suave floral pastille quality. Tannins...add shape to the very long, sappy finish, which features sweet floral and cherry qualities. The blend of richness and vivacity...impressive.

90The Wine Advocate

...more “jubilant” and flamboyant on the nose...with touches of kirsch, crushed violet and flecks of dark chocolate. The palate offers hints of toffee and mocha infusing the seductive red berry fruit. It is well-balanced with crisp acidity and a pleasing menthol-tinged finish.


Spain, Castilla-Leon, Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero is, in the words of wine writer Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson, “the modern red wine miracle of northern Spain.” In 2012 Wine Enthusiast magazine named it the international wine region of the year. The appellation is a high, rocky plateau in north/central Spain that follows the Duero River for 60 miles before the river passes into Portugal, where it becomes the famous Douro River, then flows into the Atlantic Ocean. There are more than 60,000 vineyard acres in the appellation and only red wines are produced under appellations regulations. Low rainfall, hot days, many hours of sunlight and harsh winters produce grapes of great depth and flavor. Ribera de Duero’s reputation owes much to Vega Sicilia, a 150-year old estate known both for its excellent traditional red wines and its willingness to innovate with the times. Tempranillo, known locally as Tinto Fino, is the dominant red grape in the appellation, and it is often blended with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec or Merlot. The highly acclaimed Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez, world famous for its Tinto Pesquera, is also in Ribera del Duero. The appellation status was awarded in 1982.
