Val Sotillo Crianza Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

First bottle from our Spain shipment. Racy, enticing, dark cherry notes in a full bodied mouthfeel. Really enjoying this...I feel like all the 2009 vintage notes from Vinous apply here too. — 2 days ago

Viña Sastre (Bodegas Hermanos Sastre)

Crianza Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2011

Stunning juxtaposition of power and elegance, dark brooding blackberry and mullberry, tobacco, fresh acidity, full body, and intense yet polished tannins. The 15% ABV is fully integrated. This beauty has a long way to go. From one of the best Ribera del Duero producers.

Production details: 100% Tempranillo, indigenous yeast, 14 months in 50/50 French and American oak / 40% new, no fining/filtration. Practicing organic.

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

A very dark purple rim, with an almost black center. Lovely aroma of blackberry compote accompanied with dark chocolate, clay pot, and violets. The acidity is a bit more than medium and the tannins are nicely sharp but not too serious. A metallic finish with medium length. The more I sip it, the more I like it! — a day ago

Malleolus Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2009

Tobacco and cedar dominate the nose and the initial taste on the palate. Once that subsides black fruit comes through. This masculine wine is still young and tannic and could benefit from a few more years. — 12 hours ago

Dominio del Aguila

Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Dark and inky garnet color. Aromas and flavors of smokey vanilla, wet earth, with an herbal note of sage over the top of the black fruits which are still coming through nicely. Super savory and meaty tannins and stark acidity tell me this can age infinitely! — 18 days ago

WNH event number 4. Perfect Pizza Pairing bottles. Not a bad bottle in the bunch!

In the running for the WOTW (weekend). What a special wine. Black tea, charred raspberries, and cherry tobacco on the nose. A perfectly weighted palate with cardamom and a blueberry sweetness on the finish. Tannic structure is silky and this is just beginning to get started. Wish I could have paid this more attention. Bravo,
@Bill Bender .

Emina Prestigio Ribera del Duero Reserva 2012

Deep dark ruby color. Pleasant aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, spice, and a bit of wet earth/leaves. Good acidity, but I expected the tannins to be more elegant at this stage. Savory overall. Great combo with mushroom croquettes! — 17 days ago

"Finca el Peruco" Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2017

Young and not aged in oak, so brighter and not as full as usual Tempranillo. Good tannins, currants, bright acids. Adieu, Prime Meats. — 12 hours ago
