Winemaker Notes

Black cherry color. This is an aromatic wine with a wide variety of aromas of herbs, such as lavender, rosemary and camomile, combined with ripe red and black forest fruit and slight hints of coffee and spices. It has a smooth and aromatic mid-palate accompanied by a tannin with a fine granular texture. Good acidity and balance.

It is ideal with roast suckling lamb and goat. It is also a great accompaniment to sweetbreads, mushrooms, mountain paellas (mainly rabbit) and black truffles.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
They kept the 2010 single vineyards and they are sold after the 2011, which was released last year. The 2010 La Mala showed great balance, elegance and inherent complexity. It's very fresh, austere and mineral, from one superb vineyard very rich in limestone under a 0.7-meter layer of sand. It is an 0.8-hectare plot planted with ancient vines at 960 meters altitude that yielded 0.7 kilos of grapes per plant. The tannins are super-fine, slightly chalky, and the wine has great acidity and balance. This is one of the best La Malas ever bottled. With a little less oak this could have been so much better. 1,121 bottles were filled in March 2012. Time has polished it, but it has a long life ahead of it.

Ripe, earthy aromas of prune, blackberry, baking spices and barnyard set up a rich yet balanced palate with mild tannins and integrated acidity. Flavors of blackberry, cassis and hoisin sauce end with meaty, spicy notes akin to barbecued ribs.

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.
