Winemaker Notes

Cherry red to a purple edge. On the nose there are elegant aromas marked by fruits of the forest, aromaticwood, exotic spices, tobacco, and complex mineral expression. The mouth proves to be round, with a burly long and balanced assault, which becomes soft and long. Firm tannins , of earthy character, great structure and acidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Seleccion Familiar was sourced from 70-90 year old vines and aged for 18 months in new, mostly French oak. Aromas of underbrush, brier, balsamic, boysenberry, and earthy minerals inform the nose of a wine with exceptional finesse, intensity, and proportion. Give this lengthy effort 3-4 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2021.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A thick texture carries plum, coffee, orange peel and spice flavors in this ripe red. The tannins are firm and a bit coarse, giving this version a slightly rustic character. Shows concentration and character.

Bodegas Peique, Spain
Image of winery
Bodegas Peique winery is the culmination of 90 years, and three generations of hard work and winemaking expertise; melded together to make fine standing wines, which are only produced with the highest quality grapes.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
