Produced by Peter Sisseck, of Denmark, arrived in Spain in 1993 to manage a new project and thought about the old vines around the Ribera del Duero. By the 1995 vintage, Peter had found ancient vineyards that inspired him to make "Pingus," after childhood nickname. Deep Ruby, concentrated dark fruit aromas with gently smoky notes. On the palate cherry and plum flavors, sweet vanilla spice, well balanced, soft warming tannins, long ending with slight oaky tones. Very Nice! — 15 days ago

This pinot will definitely stand apart from others. The flavor is strong and delicious. I read a description that it has a tropical feel with pomegranate notes. I would fully agree. Since pinot wines are nice but lacking the strength of a good wine. This wine can pair pretty much everywhere from appetizer to main course to dessert. It can also be your wine of choice at any occasion. It's nickname should be "I can't believe it's a pinot!" — 2 years ago
Number 15. Fruit bomb. Pronounced aromas of black fruits. Black currant jam. Chewy tannins, but with good structure. Full-body and off-dry on the palate.
Caballo Loco (Crazy Horse) is the nickname of 1 of Valdivieso’s previous winemakers Jorge Coderch, who created this wine. It doesn't have vintage but release number. This one of the top Chilean wines is created using a solera system - each edition has 50% of the current vintage and 50% of the previous. Blend: CabS, Malb, Carm, Merl, CabF, Carignan. Rating 3,9/5 — 4 years ago
Fantastic, fruity blueberry and blackberry and jammy, why its nickname is blueberry motor oil — 5 years ago
Soda fountain suicide - this is that. RedWhitePink is a suicide of six grapes - Pinot Gris, Mondeuse, Viognier, Blaufrankisch, Ribolla, Gruner. Reds treated like red, whites like white, then blended. It’d be “illegal” in Europe, hence the wine’s nickname. It’s kind of a mind trip but any singular reference point would probably lead you to Tavel.
Glowing magenta. Sour cherry lozenge, bitter blood orange, mild woodsy notes and grippy tannins.
And of course, Dr. Pepper at the end. — a year ago
Argentinians have a nickname for this wine, the liars wine. They gave it this name for how different the nose & nose intensity is from the palate.
On the nose; sweet citrus, pineapple, melon, lime zest, lemon, candied (jolly rancher if they made these flavors), honeydew, honey, some orange citrus & fruit blossoms.
On the palate; the fruits are tamer on the nose. White citrus, pineapple, melon, lime zest, lemon, green apple, candied (jolly rancher if they made these flavors) honeydew, honey, some orange citrus, big chalky volcanic minerals, saline, dry stones & fruit blossoms.
Photos of; their road sign, lobby tasting area and some landscaping around the property. — 3 years ago
