Winemaker Notes

Number 67 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

This beautiful 100% Tempranillo is from vineyards in Ribera del Duero that are over 50 years old. Aged for 10 months in oak barrels, it is bottled with minimal intervention.

The result - an incredible Tempranillo, darkly colored and richly perfumed with cedar, spice box, blueberry, plum and cherry notes. Fresh and spicy, with juicy dark fruit flavors, mineral and a touch of vanilla on the finish. Could be cellared for 10+ years, but really rich and tasty right now.

"The 2005 Neo Sentido is similarly styled but more layered and richer than the 2004. It should have a slighter longer lifeline than its older sibling."
-Wine Advocate

Wine Advocate note on 2004 vintage: "The 2004 Neo Sentido is 100% Tempranillo aged for 6 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an attractive perfume of cedar, vanilla, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry jam. Firmly structured, with good depth and concentration, this tasty wine can be cellared for several years but is rich enough to drink now through 2015."
-Wine Advocate 90 Points

"Inky violet. Deeply scented nose displays powerful cassis and blueberry, along with subtle floral qualities. Graceful, finely etched dark berry flavors deliver impressive purity and length. Finishes sweet and virtually tannin-free. This is drinking extremely well already."
-International Wine Cellar

Bodegas Conde, Ribera del Duero, Spain
Five years have passed since we started the exciting adventure which is Neo. Perhaps the first thing which may surprise you is to see three people still in the photo. We are not surprised, we are more united than ever, with our batteries thoroughly charged and ready to continue offering you the best of ourselves and our vineyards.

We invite you to continue on board this boat as we aim to make our wine one of the best in the world.

We continue to work with the best viticulturists from Ribera del Duero, we still obtain the best grapes from vineyards of more than 50 years old which are subjected to an exhaustive quality control system and quantity monitoring through the course of the year, only in this way can we obtain the necessary raw materials to make Neo. Our vines in the Estate of Cabarroso work better every day and are already incorporated in the production of some of our wines.

This year we have acquired a new vineyard which, for your interest, we will tell you is the highest in Aranda de Duero, with an approximate age of some 70 years; one more step towards attaining our goal, of having the very best grapes.

Ribera del Duero

View all wine

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 spices, dark fruit and smoky flavors of Ribera del Duero wines pair well with roast meats, BBQ and anything off the grill.

Tempranillo

View all wine

Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins, modest alcohol, and bright acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. It is important throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz and is an important component of Port wines and the table wines of the Douro region that Port calls home. California, Washington, and Oregon have all had moderate success with Tempranillo, producing a riper, more fruit-forward style of wine.

In the Glass

Tempranillo is often aged in new oak for the integration of spicy, woodsy, and herbal flavors, often with hints of vanilla, coconut, and dill. The grape itself produces medium-weight reds with bright red and black fruit aromas and hints of spice, leather, and tobacco, with no shortage of flavor.

Perfect Pairings

Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity make it extremely food friendly, pairing with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew, or paella.

Sommelier Secret

The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a system is in place to indicate on the label how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release, which is helpful to the consumer trying to determine the style of an unfamiliar wine. Rioja can range from Joven (fresh, fruity, and unoaked) to Gran Reserva (complex and oxidized from extended barrel aging), with Crianza and Reserva in between.
