Ribera Del Duero, Castilla Y León


Roble Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Black pepper, an irony thing, fresh blackberries, a touch of vanilla. This is very good. The palate is well crafted : there is a great acid drive and there is matter on the side, a nice thickness and some grip, a beautiful blackberry fruit all along, some tannins kick things up in the middle. Theid palate is spherical and there is sweetness to it but then the finish starts and it's very dry, and a bit of salt and bitterness pop up in the rear. That's a great young tempranillo. I'd say one of the best I've had recently! — 12 days ago

Hito Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Молочные ириски,лакокраска, выпечка, ваниль, вишня. Элегантный довольно-таки. Долгий дубовый финиш. Нормальное, без откровений, но на уровне вполне. — 15 days ago

Still drinking well at 15 years old.. obviously showing more secondary and tertiary flavors with subdued dark berry flavors, grilled meat juice, slight incense/smoke, raisin.. slightly astringent, preserved acidity .. good stuff! — 6 days ago

Carmelo Rodero Tinto 9 Meses Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend


I used to sell a lot of Carmelo Rodero’s wines and am an acquaintance of his and his daughters. They make fantastic wines, I was told that in 2017 they didn’t make this wine because it was such a challenging vintage (frost, hail and extreme summer heat) that the few grapes they had needed to be saved for the crianza and above. It has been a long time since I had last tried this wine and I was very impressed. Pronounced aromas and flavours and a nice fine grained tannins. #qpr #riberadelduero #spain — 13 days ago


P.S. (Pagos Seleccionados) Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino 2017

Modern take on Ribera del Duero from select vineyards. The color is deep purple, indicative of the 60+ year old vine grape selection. An expressive nose with scents of black fruits, tobacco and leather. The mouthfeel is equally expressive with cherry, blackberry, oak, vanilla, and licorice. The tannings are soft for such a young Tempranillo, and it is not slander but quite the contrary, it allows for the elegant finish with finesse and length. Very exiting wine!

PS The mastermind/winemaker behind Aalto made his mark at Vega Sicilia for over 30 years. It is no surprise the wine is excellent; it will be exciting to see how the wine evolves over the next decade and how it will challenge some of the greatest wines produced in the region.

Very good but not worth it. Gave it considerable time to open. I was underwhelmed overall. Nice cherry notes and vanilla. It’s dense and very enjoyable. However at this price it left me expecting more. — 3 days ago
