The 2019 Pesquera Reserva is a 100% Tempranillo from Pesquera del Duero, aged for 14 months in American oak barrels. Garnet-red in hue. Presents blackberry and plum aromas with vanilla and oak undertones. The palate is dry and juicy, featuring taut, reactive tannins contributing to a velvety, medium-bodied texture. Bold right now, it should mellow with age. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, November 2023)

Provided by a friend for a go deep on older wines dinner pre-Christmas. Initially concerned that a storage mishap earlier in its life may have done some damage, but once opened for 20-30 minutes, it really started to sing nicely. 31 year old Ribera del Duero from a time when you still needed to know to buy these wines on release. Deeper than a Rioja, so good dark fruits, tobacco, horse leather, and the like. Enjoyed with standing rib roast and more than held its own with Bordeaux from the same year and other delicious wines. — 3 years ago
The 2020 Crianza is a 100% Tempranillo from Pesquera del Duero. Aged for 14 months in American oak barrels, it's garnet-red with a purple sheen. The nose offers strawberry, herb, undergrowth and oak aromas. Dry and taut on the palate with finely-grained tannins and a compact profile, this is a flavorful example of a Ribera red.
