Winemaker Notes

The 2009 vintage of Barco de Piedra is one of the best vintages ever made in the Ribera del Duero region. A glass-staining opaque purple, it offers up an enticing bouquet cedar, spice box, violets, cassis, and black cherry. This is followed by a rich, flavorful, firm wine that will evolve. This lengthy bargain will drink well through 2015. It is what over-delivering is all about.

RP 87
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The purple-colored 2009 Barco de Piedra is a cuvee of 100% Tempranillo aged for 5 months in French and American oak. Earthy minerals, tapenade, licorice, and blackberry aromas lead to a meaty, savory, full-flavored red that is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 6 years.

Wine Enthusiast
Berry and rubbery aromas suggest young but spunky fruit. And the palate is indeed lively, albeity big and grabby. The flavor profile offers a mix of plum, berry and herbs, while the finish has a good feel to it and sauvage notes. Solid and likable.

Image of winery
Barco de Piedra is a joyous affirmation of the beauty and purity of the Tempranillo grape as it is grown in the Ribera del Duero DO. The noble Tempranillo, called Tinto Fino or Tinta del Pais by locals, has suffered from producers who like to use excessive “make up,” too much new oak or winemaking technique, which obscures the identity of the grape. The logic behind Barco de Piedra is simple: the Tempranillo grape grown in Ribera del Duero has plenty of tannins, you don’t need to add more, which is precisely what oak ageing will do. The grape’s thick skin naturally produces powerful, robust wines packed with flavor. Adding more power and oak to something already powerful is overkill. The climate conditions of cool nights, low rainfall and great old vines taken together produce small berries with a high skin-to-juice ratio. The three parcels that produce grapes for Barco de Piedra are located on the hillside of the Quiñón Estate, a location with a special equilibrium of temperature, drainage and soil type. Raspberry and violet aromas with rose petal, blueberry and mineral notes make this wine one of the prettiest examples of the elegance and structure of Ribera del Duero, one of the great wine regions of the world.
