Pesquera Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2012

Deep nose of an old tabacco shop, where some of the boxes are covered in layers of old dust from the smoke and ash. A hint of animal pelt.

Dark berries - cherry, boysenberry. Dried plum that is Touched by Anise, basil, a touch of mountain salt.

The very long lasting finish is fuerte y suave at the same time, with a bouncing acidity between the staves last remarks.
I love this wine. And always seem to find a bottle on my shelf.

Dominio de Pingus

Flor de Pingus Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

Pingus is produced by Peter Sisseck, of Denmark, who arrived in Spain in 1993 to manage a new project. While planting he began thinking 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. Concentrated dark fruit aromas with gently smoky notes. On the palate Rich Cherry flavors, sweet vanilla spice, well balanced, soft tannins, lingering ending with slight oaky tones. Very Nice! — 18 days ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1997

A stunning wine, the 1997 Valbuena 5° is a simply outstanding Ribera del Duero which is incredible at more than twenty years of age. This has turned out to be a complete success from a challenging vintage in Ribera and is evolving beautifully. This has great earthy character with wild mushroom, peat moss, black cherry compote and coffee grounds and cassis which all come to mind as the aromatics are absolutely seductive. The palate is plush and gorgeously textured, showing polished black tea, leather, black fruits and truffles which all marvelously combine with a bright minerality . This is a stunning wine which is showing remarkably well and will continue to evolve into the next decade. Drink 2019-2033- 96 — 2 days ago

Great wine for the price, selected by people who know what they are doing (ie not me). Not as structured as Rioja but still a lot of complexity for its age.Tempranillo from just outside of Madrid. Restaurant hierbabeuna on a hillside overlooking working — 5 days ago
