Winemaker Notes

La Planta has a cherry color with purplish edge. robe. On the nose are fresh aromas, with a high level of fruity notes (sarsaparilla, blackcurrant, and liquorice). It also features some toasted noble wood notes such as cedar. The aromas on nose are the perfect precedent for the flavors on mouth. It is a silky and tasty wine. The fruitiness (youth) has a perfect balance with the elegance (aging in barrels). It is a semicrianza, a mature and rounded wine.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Arzuaga’s 2009 La Planta is the best vintage I have tasted of this cuvee. It is 100% Tempranillo sourced from 20-year-old vines aged for 6 months in seasoned French and American oak. Purple in color with an enticing nose of cedar, spice box, incense, a hint of balsamic, and black cherry, this is a firm, well-balanced, savory wine that belies its modest price. Complex, mouth-filling, and well-proportioned, it over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 6 years.

Bodegas Arzuaga  Winery Image
Founded at the beginning of the 90 by the Arzuaga-Navarro family, the wine cellars named after them, are a fine sample of dedication and passion for land and wine.

Florentino Arzuaga is an enthusiast of the boundless horizons and wide open spaces of Castile where there is still room for nature and wildlife to exist undisturbed. Here, not far from the silent-running waters of the Duero River, Florentino bought an estate, which due to its large size has horizons of its own.

Later came the vines, the winery and, finally, the wine. Florentino has sought the red is a wine with structure, elegant, assertive and complex at the same time.

Florentino Arzuaga has the tenacious spirit of an entrepreneur coupled with an aesthetic and perfectionist sensitivity.

He is at once modest and soft-spoken, yet has been capable, in a very short time, of placing the red that bears his family name on the most sumptuous wine lists.

Ribera del Duero is located in northen Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.

Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spice, dark fruit and smoky flavors in a bold Ribera del Duero will pair well with roasted and grilled meats, Mexican food and tomato-based sauces.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port.
