2013 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
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 »

2012 Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys* This rich red shows a deep core of plum, bramble and mineral, with notes of loam and game that impart a savory character. Solid tannins support a thick texture, while balsamic acidity keeps this balanced. Austere but harmonious. Drink now through 2024." (5/2016) K&L Notes: Alejandro Fernandez' Condado de Haza may be less famous than its sister winery, Pesquera, but it also produces terrific wines that are classically built Ribera del Dueros. These wines are made not to coat the palate with sweet oak and glycerine, but rather to age gracefully and accompa... Read More »

2011 Finca El Encinal Crianza Ribera del Duero

92 points Wine Spectator: "Toasty oak, ripe fruit and vibrant acidity add up to a balanced, expressive red, with cherry and berry flavors that are bright and crunchy, while cocoa and mineral notes add depth. Lithe and lively. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,500 cases made." (12/2015) K&L Notes: Owned by the historic, traditionally minded Bodegas Franco Españolas in Rioja, Finca El Encinal is a similarly traditionally oriented Ribera del Duero. The winery's Tempranillo grapes (locally known as tinto fino) grow in heavily calcareous clay in an extremely continental... Read More »

2011 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero

Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buy* A sleek texture carries lively flavors of cherry, mint, licorice and smoke in this fresh red. Light, firm tannins and juicy acidity give this backbone.

2013 Finca El Encinal Roble Ribera del Duero

Wine Enthusiast: "Dark, raisiny aromas of kirsch and marzipan open this jammy Tempranillo. Dark berry, black plum, foresty accents and mulchiness define the flavors on this stewy, plump offering." (9/2015)

2011 Finca Villacreces Ribera Del Duero Top Pick!
2011 Finca Villacreces Ribera Del Duero

94 points Decanter: "This wine could also be in my 12 greatest Riberas. Delicious, complex, finely sewn, open. Top quality, and at a bargain price. (PBT)" (1/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Opaque purple. Exotic aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, cherry-vanilla, licorice and peppery spices. Plush and open-knit, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit flavors and hints of candied flowers and spicecake. Supple tannins build with air and add shape to a very long, supple finish that leaves cassis and mocha notes behind.

2012 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

93 points Wine & Spirits: "An indomitable vintage of Pesquera, delicious and wild: This wine’s aromas are reminiscent of raw meat and earth. Right now, the tannins scratch like a cat sprawled out on its back, soft in the middle, but dangerous to approach too closely. And yet the wine has lovely fruit depths at its heart. Too young to drink now, but if you dare, try it with chuletón de Avila (a grilled ribeye) and papas fritas." (6/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "Ripe fruit with dried mushroom, blackberry and meat aromas. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold."

2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since the 2010 harvest, they ferment plot by plot, and it shows. This Valbuena has almost 100 components in it, smaller lots, all of them corresponding to a plot of vines. It has all the signs of being one of the best vintages ever for this second wine from Vega Sicilia, mostly Tempranillo but with 5% Merlot that matured five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 18 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then five months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2013. 2010 seems to have the exuberan ...Read More »

2013 Lambuena Tinto Ribera del Duero

2009 Valsotillo Reserva Ribera del Duero

This is a fantastic example of what put Ribera del Duero on the map in the early 1980's. Aromas show intense, yet perfumed and layered dark fruits, along with a hint of earthy walnut shells in the background. On the palate the fruit is black and brightly energetic. There is an underlying floral quality which adds lift to such an intensely flavored wine. Simply put, this is a great bottle of wine to drink now or put away for long while; it will surely go the distance. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

2011 Pago de los Capellanes Reserva Ribera del Duero

Located in Pedrosa de Duero, Pago de los Capellanes is one of the most consistent producers in all of Ribera del Duero. Even in more challenging vintages such as the warm and dry 2011, they make very good quality wine, with tasty fruit, bright acidity and nicely balanced oak. The 2011 Reserva is a fine example: darker fruited, deeply pitched and pure, not at all overshadowed by extraction or marked by the heat of the vintage, tthis shows great intensity, layered flavors, and a promising future.

2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

94 points Wine Spectator: "This harmonious red is balanced and deep, offering ripe plum and currant flavors, with black pepper, tobacco, licorice and mineral accents. Delivers plenty of structure, with well-integrated tannins and lively acidity. The wine remains graceful through the long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2027. 6,500 cases made." (10/2015) Jancis Robinson: "A very difficult year – 'this is not a wine, it’s a miracle.' Plenty of developed, earthy aromas on the nose, charming red fruit and lovely coffee grounds – but there is indeed a (comparative) lack of body and concentration betrayin ...Read More »

Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero (2013 release)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Release (I could write the same note for all three wines) has a beautifully complex bouquet, a silky-smooth texture, elegance, and a long, pure finish. It should drink well for another 25 years. ...On the occasion of my visit in May 2010, the three Reserva Especials already in bottle and awaiting release were tasted side by side. They are identified (for the purposes of this review only) as the 2013 Release, the 2012 Release, and the 2011 Release. I was not told what vintages are in each bottling but it actually makes little difference. The Re ...Read More »

2002 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Having skipped over releasing a 2001 due to frost damage, the 2002 Unico is a result of a severe selection as attested by the label which shows that just 42,932 bottles were produced instead of 108,536 in 2000. It has an incredibly intense nose, much more linear and focused than the more flamboyant 2000, with scents of dark cherry, creme de cassis and a touch of honey and melted dark chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight grainy texture on the entry, a hint of cooked meat inflecting the layers of toasty dark berry fruit. It is very harmonio ...Read More »

2008 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Valbuena is produced with Tempranillo and 7% Merlot and Malbec from a cold, rainy season and late harvest. 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. The aromas are subtle, there is fruit, but there is soil and above all there is harmony. The palate is long ...Read More »

1989 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated dark, fresh red. Exotic dried fruits complicated by minerals, cedar, cigar box and nuts on the nose. Huge, dense and solid, with great sappy redcurrant and wild strawberry sweetness buffered by powerful acids. With its huge concentration and extraordinarily chewy extract, this has fruit of steel. The wine's explosive, extremely long finish and great thrust go beyond 99.99% of the world's wines." (8/2003) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 Unico, a blend of 80% Tinto Fino and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon picked early from 30th September, has a gorgeous, minty bouquet with blackb ...Read More »

1996 Bodegas Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero Crianza

93 points Vinous: "Saturated ruby-red. Expressive, pungent aromas of roasted black raspberry and dark chocolate, with floral, menthol and spice notes. A major mouthful of suave, generous, but sharply defined fruit; thoroughly ripe, sweet dark berry, chocolate and game flavors coat the entire palate. A complex minerally quality emerged with aeration. Very concentrated and very long; finishes with firm but ripe and even tannins. Try this wine alongside a flight of top California Cabs. (ST)" (11/1999) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This project, from a large estate in Ribera del Duero, has the gifted Danish ...Read More »

2003 Figuero "Noble" Ribero del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an impressive lineup from Garcia Figuero. Each of the wines is 100% Tempranillo from estate vineyards but differ in terms of oak treatment and vineyard selection. The grand finale is the 2003 Figuera Noble. The grapes for this superb effort are from estate vineyards over 70 years of age. The wine was aged in new barrels for 21 months, the first 15 in American oak, and the last 6 months in French Allier and Troncais oak. The wine is purple in color with a nose of toasty oak and candied black fruits with a touch of minerality. On the palate it is l ...Read More »

2014 Quinta da Muradella Alanda Blanco Monterrei

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2014 was not an easy vintage, there were up to 40 liters of rain during the harvest, not that it's noticeable in the 2014 Alanda Blanco, which is the house blend of white grapes and soils; this wines mixes newer and older vineyards, and is co-fermented without any clarification or settling of the must with indigenous yeasts. The nose is completely mineral, a soil-driven profile, austere, reminiscent of wet granite stones, a really lovely nose. The palate is sharp, vertical, focused, clean and precise, with austere granite minerality that translate into a ...Read More »
