Unico Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend

A fantastic nose. Deep blackberry, dark cherry, plum, mint, leather, blood and a touch of vanilla oak. On the palate this is velvety, intense, beautifully poised. Great fruit with lovely balance and real length. Exceptional. Vintages 90,94,96. — 8 days ago

It’s the Riserva especial, a NV wine made of a blend of the vintage for each release. This was a mix of 90,94 and 96

That should have read ‘of three vintages for each release’

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1961

Tasted blind. Dark reddish tawny. Mostly translucent. Amazing nose. Powerful. A spectrum of notes including red fruit, cola, pencil lead, black truffles, coffee, blood sausage and some dry dark soil. Animalistic. Massive fruit and structure with a long finish. Someone says "honey ham" as a note in the nose and we all agree (first ever note involving the word "ham"). This was a wine where everyone's score or appreciation greatly improved over the evening. A best ever Unico for me. (M's 60th bday 4th of 14) — 22 days ago

Viñedos del Contino (CVNE)

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

This is not a big wine, maybe a little thin in the palate, but it has a good nose with great red floral aromatics and fresh fruit, red cherry, spicy raspberry, juicy plum, creamy vanilla, mixed herbs, candied flowers, incense, woodsmoke, leather and some crunchy, charred earth. The wine is ending with a great, fresh and mouthfilling acidity so that you want another sipp... — a month ago

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2017

A progression of flavours - starts like a Ribera (juicy fruit), ends like a rioja (chunk of oak). Ultimately it’s good, but she wasn’t ready. — 21 days ago

Alion Muestra Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2013

1991 inaugural vintage by famous Vega Sicilia estate. Tried the ‘13 again and it doesn’t disappoint. Deep Ruby with an array of aromas, dark fruits, spice, floral and some oak. The palate shows strawberry, blackberry & plum flavors with hints of espresso and licorice encased in gentle oak. Firm tannins great balance with acidity, full body, long finish ends with fruit, oak, spice, and mineral character. Will still benefit from more time! — 21 days ago

Viña Almate Tempranillo

This dusty, warm, plump Tempranillo easily outperformed its 9.50€ tariff. Some reduction and grainy leather character blew off quickly , uncovering a heady, floral nose and a juicy, cherry palate, nicely framed by the dusty tannins. Fairly harmonious overall, and nicely impactful. Lots of character for the price. Easy re-buy. — 19 days ago
