Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero Tinto 2000
from Ribera del Duero, Spain
In 1987, Alejandro Fernández, the acknowledged master of Spains precocious Tempranillo grape, spied a neglected slope along the Duero River which promised to be the most ideal vineyard site in the region: one full kilometer of southfacing slope leading to the rivers edge, remarkable in the absence of intervening benchland terrain. 15 months in American oak. This year presented a short crop of healthy grapes, resulting in a rich, deeply colored wine with robust, chewy tannins balanced by a perfect touch of clean, toasty oak.

i drank this wine at a local restaurant (FYI wine list price: $40) and it was fantastic--one of the best wines i've had in recent memory. to this day, i still think of it as the standard for all Ribera del Duero reds. search for it. it's worth the effort.
