2014 Valderiz Ribera del Duero

94 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and muscular, yet graceful, this red balances ripe blackberry and cassis flavors with savory black olive, bitter chocolate and mineral notes. The firm tannins are well-integrated, and lively acidity keeps this fresh through the spicy and floral finish. Drink now through 2028. 420 cases made. *Highly Recommended* (TM)" (6/2017) K&L Notes: Located in the district of Roa, one of the best villages for vineyards in Ribera del Duero, and perhaps not coincidentally, where the offices of the RDD consejo are based, Valderiz makes great wines from Tempranillo grapes in t...

2013 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I’ve loved this wine in the past and the 2013, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak. What’s amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-expensive Darnajou barrels. For $20 this i ...Read More »

2013 Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero Crianza Top Pick!
2013 Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero Crianza

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wonderful 2013 Crianza from Hacienda Monasterio is one of the great successes from a challenging vintage that resulted in a heterogeneous collection of wines, where you can find the best and the worst. 2013 was a shorter vintage and they didn't do a Reserva or Reserva Especial that year, so the very best grapes from their estate vineyards went into this Crianza...The Monasterio vineyards are south-facing, the warmer exposure in the northern hemisphere, so they have an advantage in cooler years such as this 2013. Since 2012, the vineyards are organica ...Read More »

2014 Hacienda Solano Ribera del Duero

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The eponymous 2014 Hacienda Solano is produced with Tempranillo from the village of La Aguilera fermented in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barrels for ten months. It's a serious Tempranillo with power and ripeness keeping the freshness and balance. There are some earthy and smoky aromas too. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and good freshness. This is a very good expression of the year, ripe and fresh. Incredible good value for Ribera del Duero.

2014 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

Alejandro Fernandez is rightfully a Spanish icon, having been one of the early pioneers in the Ribera del Duero D.O. He is a champion of the local Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape variety, and has proven time and time again that his vines around Pesquera del Duero consistently produce rich, powerful, fragrant, and elegant Ribera del Duero that is capable of improving with bottle age. These are wines that are typically aged in more American oak, with a sensible barrel rotation and extraction that never veers too much to the overly dark and chewy side. This ... Read More »

2013 Hacienda Solano Vinas Viejas Ribera del Duero

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Selección Viñas Viejas is a mixture of Tempranillo grapes from multiple small plots of old vines in the village of La Aguilera, where the family has the vineyards and the winery. There is low alcohol and very good freshness here, despite the fact that it was harvested in mid-October. It matured in oak barrels for one year. 2013 was a challenging vintage, a cool year, but with problems of botrytis during the harvest, so it was necessary to sort and select thoroughly, and they even sold some grapes. The old vines are harvested earlier, and these w ...Read More »

2012 Pago de los Capellanes Crianza Ribera del Duero

Composed of Tempranillo from Pedrosa de Duero, and then aged in all French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 one year-old, 1/3 two year-old), this Ribera shows dark cherry and red plum fruited aromas. Approachable now, it is also serious enough to age a while in your cellar. Pago de los Capellanes is one of the most consistent producers in all of Ribera del Duero. They always seem to make very good quality, fresh, nicely structured wine, with tasty fruit, bright acidity and well balanced oak. This is a very solid Ribera del Duero for the money.

2012 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Valbuena was cropped from a vintage with a very dry and warm summer that resulted in very healthy grapes. Since the 2010 vintage, this wine is fermented plot by plot following the findings from a soils study they did. The élevage is in French and American oak barrels that on average lasts some 18 months followed by another 18 months in 20,000-liter oak vats, but of course some lots had more time in barrique and others more time in vat.

Lots of wood but this is stylish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2019." (12/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pícaro Tinto is Tempranillo with some 5% Albillo and selected from vineyards where the soils have a higher content of clay. This is always produced from the same vineyards since the initial vintage, 2012. 2014 could sometimes feel a little austere and sometimes a little reductive.

Vega Sicilia "Único" Ribera del Duero Reserva Especial (2012 release) (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 2012 release of Unico Reserva Especiale is a blend of 1991, 1994 and 1999. It has an immediately seductive bouquet of macerated cherries, lavender, marmalade and candied orange peel. It has wonderful definition and purity. The palate is medium-bodied with lush, rounded tannins on the entry. Vibrant dark berries, maraschino, orange peel and a dash of Chinese 5-spice all vie for attention, whilst the finish is elegant, sensual and beautifully defined. This is very alluring and for want of a better word--sexy. Drink 2013-2025+. (NM)" (8/2012)

Wine Enthusiast: "Lightly baked and hinting at raisin and fine herbs, the bouquet on this benchmark Spanish red enfolds aromas of tobacco, moss and ripe tomato. In the mouth, it’s elegant and silky but also full and expansive. Flavors of baked berry fruits, baking spices, herbs and cocoa finish with a light coating of toast. This is an amazingly complete, exemplary wine that’s just entering its prime. If past vintages of Unico are an indication, it will age well through 2035. (MS)" (05/2015)

There are more black fruit aromas, subtle spices and hints of complexity, as well as tertiary aromas that are quite classic and turn more balsamic with time in the glass. Again, this is very different form the 2012 Alión, rounder, riper, richer, more polished, mellow, soft, quite exuberant and hedonistic.

It reminds me of the Riberas of yesteryear, sharper with a slight rusticity, long and sharp. Once fermented, the wine matured for seven months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 12 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then six months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2011.

Supple and expansive, offering sweet, spice-accented red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors that stain the palate. Dusty tannins add shape and grip to the very long, smooth, penetrating finish. I find this wine quite approachable now but it has the balance to age.

The wine might be a tad lighter than other vintages, but it's more structured than 2008; it combines elegance and power, is nicely balanced and should be able to develop in bottle for many years.

NV Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero (2014 Release)
Bid on this bottle of Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero (2014 Release) (98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV 2014 Release Reserva Especial is a blend of different harvests, and therefore sold without a harvest year. This 2014 Release is a blend of 1994, 1995 and 2000, three very good years for Unico. Reserva Especial is the most Burgundian, classical and reminiscent of the old-style Vega Sicilias of yesteryear, a more subtle, baroque wine, aged for a long time in wood. It has a high level of complexity and a touch of volatility, which clearly tells you that this is not a style for everyone. This is not a fruit-driven wine. It’s a tertiary wine with a developed, complex bouquet consisting of hints of leather, earth, spices and iodine, and a subtle, elegant style. This was bottled in 2010 and is one of the best modern-day Reserva Especial vintages. By the way now that we’re talking about the best Reserva Especial, if you ever have the chance to drink a bott

Based in Roa, the seat of the Ribera del Duero consejo and one of the prime vineyard areas in the D.O., Altos de Terral is produced by the winemaker of Pago de Capellanes. It is a rich and lush expression, in keeping with the warm and dry vintage conditions of 2011, but with a richness, generosity and fruit purity that I have yet to see in other Ribera del Duero wines from this vintage.

2013 Dominio del Aguila Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2013 was certainly not an easy vintage in Ribera del Duero, but it's one of those years where the ones that knew how to read the vintage achieved better wines than in an 'easy' vintage. I'd say that's clearly the case of the 2013 Reserva from Jorge Monzón. It's aromatic, expressive, floral and still very Ribera, subtler and fresher without losing the essence of the place. They already have their style, identifiable; they always use 100% full clusters, but only use grapes from ripe stems, even in 2013, a year where it was easy to find herbal aromas and la ...Read More »
