This remarkable Ribera has beautiful red fruit aromas and flavors on the palate along with vibrant acidity to deftly balance the firm structure and formidable volume. With meaty, herbal, and earthy aromas, this wine has the soul typical of great Riberas and the 2004 vintage's excellent evolution indicates this wine can age well for quite a number of years. Pair this with lamb shank, roast beef, grilled steak and braised pork shoulder. For more casual fare, beef, lamb or bison burgers on the rare side and ropa vieja are good matches.
"The 2008 J.C. Vizcarra, from a moderately challenging vintage, was the recipient of all the juice that would have gone into the estate’s upper-tier wines. It was aged for 15 months in 50% new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, lavender, and blackberry. Ripe, succulent, and structured, it has 2-3 years of aging potential and will provide prime drinking from 2012 to 2020. It is a great value in serious red wine.
The Wine Advocate
"Meaty and dense aromas of black fruits, earth and leather are subtle and interesting. Layered and smooth on the palate, with deep berry and plum flavors offset by herbal leanings and vanilla. Slightly oaky on the finish, with length and liveliness. Drink now through 2014."
"Bright violet. Youthful, high-pitched aromas of red and dark berries, with a touch of anise. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and licorice flavors are lifted by tangy minerality, picking up a floral quality with air. Nervy and pure on the long, spicy, red-fruity aftertaste."
