Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1998

The last vintage made by the great Mariano Garcia. Still in excellent shape this will go another 10-15 years easy. Complex and evolves over the palate with finesse and precision. #vegasicilia #valbuena #tempranillo #riberadelduero #tintofino — 4 years ago

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2009

95% Tinto Fino (#tempranillo) 3% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Merlot and in the past sometimes 1% Malbec when it was worth adding (currently does not exist as it was recently uprooted). Typically 180k bottles of production.
Red garnet core with an edge of ruby.
Elegant red fruits, earth, mushroom and a beam of clean and well integrated oak.
Palate is juicy, fresh with excellent acidity and ripe and fine, but firm medium-full grain tannins.

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1994

#VegaSicilia #Unico #1994 This is officially my favorite bottle of wine that I've ever tasted. Black Cherry, Tangy Blackberry, Cassis, Clove, herbaceous, Big Acidity, endlessly layered. It almost changed with each sip over the course of 2 hours. Became spicier as it opened up in the decanter. This wine has a long life ahead of it still... I drank this with (my favorite) Mexican Food from @CasaVega Cheese Enchiladas, guacamole, chips & salsa... & it paired Beautifully!! A moment I won't forget... I'm in love❤️ #DrinkThis — 3 years ago

Pintia Muestra Toro Tempranillo 2008

Plum, blackberry, rich but refined with very full grain and ripe tannin that meshes well with the full, but not overblown Toro style of wine. I had this from a 3L a few days before and it was much more open and naturally in a better place being open and decanted naturally as this was near the end of the 3L.
Top 3 producer for me in the region.
American, French and Hungarian oak, 70-30 or 60-40 French to American, Hungarian <1%. 200k bottles of production.

Alion Muestra Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2012

Similar to the Vega Sicilia process where barrel/bottle aging is 2 years of each, with 70/30 French/American oak. Some of the vineyard sources are at Vega Sicilia, with the rest scattered through the local region. For example 25 hectares are in Padilla, 40 in Pesquera.
The nose and palate show red opulent fruits, licorice, subtle French oak apparent with a spicy seasoning of wood and an underpinning of minerality and freshness from the cooler 2012 vintage.
250-280k bottles typically produced annually.

The sweet smoke of a pipe and the deep dark depths of a plum jam and cranberry sauce. #vegasicilia — 4 years ago
