Winemaker Notes

The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard that was planted between 1975 and 1985 called El Carril. The soils are alluvial with a mixture of clay, sand, and gravel. Tineta was fermented in stainless steel and then transferred and aged into 3-year-old barrels for 7 months.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Well, this was not what expected when I first nosed it, the 2012 Tineta seemed soft and too easy. But as I returned to it, the wine seem to gain volume and flavor interest. I found myself engaged and liking it more than my first impressions. I must be drinking too many New World tannic monsters lately. This wine re-grounded me, just a bit. Now if only I see what I did with that roast chicken and raw wild leafy greens recipe. Deep ruby color; ripe fruit aroma, very good, simple; medium bodied, textured on the palate, soft tannins; dry, medium acidity, good balance; ripe fruit flavors; medium finish. Drinking very well now. (Tasted: December 7, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

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 wine.
