Selección Especial Sardon de Duero Tempranillo Blend 2014

Super nice value wine. Recommended by the Somm and had a beautiful spice note and complexity. Tannins didn't kill us. I'd buy this all day. — 25 days ago

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! — 22 days ago

El Anejón Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino Blend 2009

I loved the 2010 so couldn’t wait to try the €66 2009 that I nabbed from @gabymeetswine @vilaviniteca 😁 Again in a lovely box & a delicious wine that’s softer than the 2010 but yumbags 👍 If you want oomph (I’m talking slap on the bottom) go 2010 if you want elegance (Like a silky butt massage) go 2009 😉

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 — 6 days ago

Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino 2016

Too much oak at this stage. Nice dark fruit and high acidity gives a promise of great future. Hold for few years. — 4 days ago
