An Eric Solomon joint venture with Isaac Fernandez. Tank fermented 100% Tempranillo that has been aged in older American and French oak. Picked from a 70 year old vineyard located 2,700 ft. in elevation. "Creta" means "Chalk" which is an important mineral component found in the top vineyards of the Ribera del Duero.
"The 2007 Creta Roble is 100% Tempranillo aged 4-5 months in neutral French and American oak. Purple-colored it exhibits a brooding bouquet of mineral, spice box, violets, and assorted black fruits. On the palate it is medium to full-bodied with exceptional volume for its humble price. Smooth-textured, dense, and savory, this nicely balanced effort may well evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. It is an outstanding value.
The Wine Advocate
"Glass-staining ruby. Spicy dark berry and cherry-vanilla aromas are complemented by anise, tobacco and herbs. Juicy cherry and blackcurrant flavors are pure and nicely focused, with no obvious tannins and a seductively sweet quality. Reminds me a bit of a Pesquera wine. Finishes on a lively bittersweet cherry note, with very good persistence and lingering spice and vanilla notes."
