Pesquera Ribera del Duero Tinto 2001
from Ribera del Duero, Spain
"A whopper in the making, the 2001 Tinto possesses extraordinarily sweet fruit, purity, and richness. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by loads of chocolatey, black currant, cherry, raspberry, and licorice characteristics, full body, good acidity, and a long, layered finish. It should drink well for 10-15 years."
-Wine Advocate 91-94 points
Winemaker Alejandro Fernandez is a legend, and this elegant and fruity red from Spain will show you why. Intensely expressive in its youth, with dark fruits, leather, and spice, it is a joy to drink. In style, this will remind longtime Pesquera fans of the early export vintages, notably the 1983.

The 2001 vintage was outstanding in Spain - this wine is a testament to how amazing Spanish reds can be in a great vintage. Rich, chewy, ripe fruit, spice - it's all there

A fun, tasty, red with loads of dark fruits, spicy, rich... I think it combines the best qualities of Syrah and Cabernet. Great with steak.
