Winemaker's Notes

Purple-black in color with a brooding nose of earth, mineral, blackberry and blueberry compote. A smooth-textured, opulent wine with tons of flavor. It has a long, pure finish and several years of aging potential. It is an excellent value for a Ribera del Duero of this quality.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Alonso del Yerro went through malolactic fermentation in new French oak and was aged sur lie for 12 months with batonnage. Purple-colored, it has an enticing bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, violets, spice notes, and black cherry jam. Suave, sweet, and layered on the palate, it has loads of savory fruit, excellent concentration, and several years of aging potential. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2026. "
92 Points

"Opaque ruby. Fresh red berries and cherry on the nose, with sexy Asian spices and minerals adding energy. Seamless raspberry and candied cherry flavors stain the palate but are almost weightless, with finegrained tannins adding shape. An understated, precise wine that finishes with excellent clarity and persistence."
92 Points

"This red shows good concentration, with plum, licorice, meat and smoke notes in a thick texture, framed by firm tannins. Needs time to unpack, but makes an impression. This was the better of two bottles. Best from 2010 through 2015. 400 cases imported."
