Winemaker's Notes

Our main grape variety is Tinto Fino, a Tempranillo clone featuring big clusters. Normally, wine is bottled after 18 months upbringing in the cask.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Crianza is a bit more structured than the previous wines. Aromatically, it displays creme de cassis, mineral, spice box, and black cherry. Savory, balanced, and intensely flavored, it has enough structure to evolve for several more years and should drink well through 2026. "
93 Points

"Opaque ruby. Deep, pungent, highly expressive aromas of cassis, cherry compote, smoked meat, olive and dried flowers, with a spicy undertone. Expansive and sweet on the palate, with mineral-accented red and dark berry flavors and mounting smokiness. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with excellent clarity and thrust and an echo of smoky minerals. This is much more open than the 2005 was at the same stage and sexier as well. "
92 Points

"Plum and currant flavors are ripe and fresh in this round red. Accents of herbs, licorice and smoke add interest. Firm tannins and fresh acidity are well-balanced. Drink now through 2016. 1,000 cases imported."

Hacienda Monasterio is owned by Carlos del Rio whose family has been in the sherry business for decades. Being fortunate enough to own some prime, south-facing parcels on the right side of the river, Carlos hired Peter Sisseck, the owner/winemaker of the famed Ribera estate Pingus to take over the winemaking in 1995. Peter has helped to turn this old estate into a Ribera powerhouse with wines that can age for years.
