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!

Needs more time to be its best but packed with flavor and teed up for a long life.

Much richer than ‘14, also more noticeable wood (tho they claim to always be pulling back on oak). Warm vintage=too boozy

What a disappointment not a bad bottle or bad luck. Wine was not spoiled but tasted younger, weaker and more acid than a $8 self service yellow tail
