Winemaker's Notes

#26 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Deep red intense colour. In the mouth the notes of ripe fruit predominate combined with smooth toasted oak. Very structured wine, high level of tannins, with sweet sensations that add volume to it when in the mouth. This crianza wine, in contrast to other Ribera del Duero crianza wines, opens up your appetite and makes you want to keep sensing its aroma. It possesses an aromatic elegance that is obtained via a balance between depth (mineral, balsamic and bush notes), freshness, ripeness (blackberries and raspberries) and its ageing in French oak barrels (which adds creaminess, structure, hints of aniseed and toasted flavours to it). In the mouth something unexpected happens: there is a vivacious entry, a fresh and juicy flow and a long dry after-taste where again the memories from the ageing process surface. All in all it is a surprising crianza because it goes from intense colours and explosive aromas to coffee, cocoa and cedar.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and focused, this firm red delivers ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit, backed by espresso and licorice accents, finishing with alluring notes of sous-bois and mineral. Offers depth and drive. Drink now through 2016."
