Winemaker's Notes

Bright ruby in color, the wine displays notes of cherry and raspberry which twist towards more complex, spicy, aromas of cinnamon and pink pepper finishing with hints of cigar. The palate has a lingering texture, and full body, enriched with velvety tannins and an appealing cherry taste. There is a long spicy finish.

This wine can easily be paired with roasted red meats and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pico Cuadro Vendimia Seleccionada is sourced from vines 60 years or older and is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. The nose is well-defined and very fresh with scents of small dark cherries, a touch of cassis, fresh dates and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins on the entry: vibrant red cherries, a hint of orange zest and star anise. The finish is taut, crisp and feminine – an elegant Ribera del Duero that should age well."
91 Points

"Bright violet. Spicy cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas are brightened by cracked pepper and violet, with a slow-building vanilla note adding complexity. Sweet, deeply concentrated, slow-to-open dark berry flavors show good precision and energy, with an exotic violet pastille note adding vibrancy to the back end. Closes up on the finish, which offers a youthful berry skin character and good persistence. This is still a baby.
Rating: 90(+?)"

"A fresh and gentle take on the 2009 harvest, this wine offers lively red fruit flavors in a suave texture. Its structure is firm, sustaining the wine through a juicy finish that will brighten the flavors of roast lamb."
