Dominio de Pingus

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2010

I met @Aaron Hamrock on Wednesday and the first wines he shared were a ‘86 Mouton (my Red Wine of the trip), a ‘90 Beausajor a ‘07 Larkmead Lark and this, the holy grail of Spanish wines. Pretty solid intro. This was rich and round but still not fully strutting in my opinion. If the dinner was 2 hours longer and it hadn’t been completely drained it would have been interesting to see where this went. I say hold if you have one, which you probably don’t. — 6 days ago

Vega de Yuso

Pozo de Nieve Ribera del Duero Tempranillo

2016- lush and jammy hut with leather and spice. Good tannins and notes if anise and nutmeg, and a little woody. Really wonderful with mushrooms and grilled meats. Would prefer to give it another few years, but delectable right now. — 4 days ago

Reserva Edición Limitada El Pedrosal Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2005

earthy, savory and herbal notes envelope a soft core of dried and candied fruit ~ pretty cool they separated this parcel of old vine Tempranillo originally slated for their Gran Reserva and held release back for over a decade — a day ago

Condado de Haza

Condado de Haza Alenza Gran Reserva Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 1996

A nicely aged Spanish Red from Ribera Del Duero.

Showing black and red fruits with earth notes, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 23 Year old is drinking very nicely now with a nice mouthfeel and good structure.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show the tannins.

Nicely balanced with nice complexity. A great sipping wine.

I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

13% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Bodegas Los Astrales

Astrales Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

Hard to beat for $27. Black fruit aromas. BlackBerry, plum, and charcoal. Needs a decant and more aging since tannins are still prominent. But very good right now. — 2 days ago

Muestra Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2004

Wonderfully lush. A whiff of menthol, some syrupy sweet red fruit. Oak still prominent, but overall this is a beautifully complete and lucid wine. Needs tiiiime. Very good potential. — 15 days ago

de Restia Ribera del Duero Crianza 2012

Chocolate ganache, leather, tobacco, deliciousness. Firm, supportive tannins. Give this time. Or at minimum a very generous decant. — 16 days ago

Finca Meixeman Ribeira Sacra Mencía 2017

90.5 Great refreshing acid, low to mod tannin, silky texture. Ripe cranberry, raspberry jam, strawberry, a bit of savory spice, touch of pepper. Kinda smells and tastes like Northern Rhone syrah's younger less developed but more peppy and high energy brother. — 12 days ago
