Winemaker Notes

Covered ripe sweet-cherry color, with a purple, clean and shiny hue. A mixture of red and black fruit, spices (black pepper, cinnamon), chocolate, young toasty wood and a mineral balsamic background on the nose. Full, fleshy, velvety, very good structure without being astringent, sweet tannins, balanced glyceric fruit. Balsamic finish with licorice notes and a sweet bitterness in the finish.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Ramon Valle is also Mencia but from 55-year-old vines on slate aged for 6 months in barrel. More deeply colored and revealing a perfume of brooding black fruits along with licorice and espresso, in the glass it is dense, balanced and structured enough to evolve for 1-2 years. This lengthy effort is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years.

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.
