2013 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero

92 points James Suckling: "A firm and silky red with chewy tannins and pretty fruit. Full body, seamless tannins and a fruity finish. Drink or hold." (7/2015) 92 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, he ...Read More »

2013 Lambuena Tinto Ribera del Duero

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Intense in its aromas of ripe black fruit, rich in flavors of blackberries and spice, this Ribera offers depths of earthiness and more delicate herbal details. The flavors last long, ready to serve with slow-braised pork." (6/2015) K&L Notes: Located in the town of Roa, which is part of the Burgos district, Lambuena is a producer of D.O. Ribera del Duero wines and is one of our newest Spanish direct imports. Ideally situated in the central growing region of the Ribera del Duero, in an area known for the very high quality of its chalky clay soils and its extreme conti... Read More »

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."

2013 Dominio de Pingus "Flor de Pingus" Ribera del Duero

94 points James Suckling: "A linear and refined red with dense fruit, yet bright and racy. Full-bodied, tannic and firm. Shows wonderful length and complexity. 100% tempranillo and aged in 40% new French barrels. Needs about four to five years to soften but already beautiful." (7/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Flor de Pingus is a mosaic of different vineyards in the village of La Horra in Burgos, totaling some 35 hectares. As all these are estate vineyards, they were much better controlled than those used for PSI, and the wine shows it in a challenging vintage like this one. It has a slightly diffe ...Read More »

2011 Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero

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 made not to coat the palate with sweet oak and glycerine, but rather to age gracefully and accompany what is on your dinner table. This all Tempranillo wine comes from vines originally planted in 1989 on an ideal, south facing slope of calcareous clay soil, with some gravelly sections as well as a vineyard slope downward towards the Duero river.

2013 Pago de los Capellanes Joven Ribera del Duero

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Layering crisp red fruit with a wisp of smoke, this broadens into an enveloping mouthful of blackberry and raspberry flavor. It’s ripe and easy to drink, gently gliding over the palate to meet cecina de vaca, air-cured beef that’s a specialty of León." (6/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Joven is a young, fresh, fruity Tempranillo from their younger vines, which aged for a short time in oak barrels. It has a fruit-driven nose, is clean and shows polished tannins and good acidity, which makes it feel supple and tasty. One of the finest young Riberas I tasted for this article ...Read More »

2011 Pago de los Capellanes Crianza Ribera del Duero

91 points Wine Spectator: "This red is polished, focused and graceful, offering flavors of cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice and mineral. Shows a balance of fruit and savory elements, with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Drink now through 2021. 16,000 cases made." (8/2015) K&L Notes: Composed of Tempranillo from Pedrosa de Duero (about 4 km from Roa), 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 ... 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 »

1995 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 Unico is a worthy successor to the profound 1994 (awarded a score of 98+ in Issue #159). Opaque purple in color, it has aromatic complexity which nearly defies words. There are notes of earth, licorice, hard wood charcoal, and black currants. Full-bodied, and powerful, the wine has beautiful balance with a multi-dimensional character and the structure to last for 25-40 years. (JM)" (2/2007) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red. Intense, expressive aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cherry liqueur, sandalwood, cigar box, roasted coffee and exotic chocolate. Thick and sweet, wit ...Read More »

2002 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-hued 2002 Crianza exhibits luscious notes of melted licorice, cherries, dried herbs, earth, and a hint of wood. (RP)" (6/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "right ruby-red. Superripe aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, and musky roasted herbs. Then silky and quite suave in the mouth, with good definition to its sweet black fruit, game and floral flavors. Offers a fine-grained texture and healthy ripe acidity. Finishes broad for the year, with very good length and rich, slightly dry tannins. A 2002 with no hole in the middle. (ST)" (9/2005) Wine Spectator: "Rich, international-style ...Read More »

2011 Pago de los Capellanes Reserva Ribera del Duero, Spain

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.

1994 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1994 Unico is a blend of 80% Tinto Fino, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot (presumably 2% is unknown varieties) that was picked from September 28. It is very intense with notes of raspberry, wild strawberry and mulberry with sensational minerality and vigor. There is a Margaux-like florality to the 1994 that blossom with aeration. The palate is rounded and supple on the entry with great weight and backbone. There is real substance here, similar to the 1996. It expands in the mouth with ravishing notes of blackberry, strawberry, citrus lemon, orang ...Read More »

1996 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Unico has a very pure, pastille-like bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry, crushed stone and a touch of Chinese tea. It has impressive delineation and linearity. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins. The fruit profile is shimmering in the glass with black cherries, cassis and blueberry notes. It is very feminine and powerful towards the poised, tensile finish that is long and seductive. One of the finest recent vintages, suffused with sensuality and opulence, the 1996 Unico is destined to be a great wine, one that might unfairly ...Read More »

1970 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For many years, the 1970 Unico was the greatest Spanish wine that I had ever tasted, and although this was not the same caliber as the previous perfect example, it remains a fabulous wine. It is a blend of 70% Tinto Fino, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot and Malbec and aged for ten years in barriques. It has a thrilling Bordeaux-like personality on the nose that is more aloof than other vintages. The Cabernet component in the blend is pronounced, forming the backbone and austerity of this wine. However, you cannot deny its power and its breeding, or ...Read More »

Vega-Sicilia "Único Reserva Especial 1985, 1991, 1996 (2005 Release)" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Limited in availability (54 barrels, or about 1,300 cases), the non-vintage Unico Reserva Especial is a blend of the 1996, 1991, and 1985 vintages. The lot number is 12/05 as the estate releases this wine in 600 bottle allotments. It is a fabulously complex, dark ruby/purple-colored offering boasting sumptuous notes of graphite, kirsch liqueur, spice box, and vanilla. Opulent, round, and full-bodied, with great precision, freshness, and depth, it should last for another 20-30 years.

1995 Bodegas Alejandro Fernández "Tinto Pesquera Janus" Ribera del Duero Gran Reserva

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The full-bodied 1995 Janus Gran Reserve (a cuvee only produced previously in 1994, 1991, 1986, and 1982) is remarkably young and vibrant despite the fact that it has been aged for 3 years in oak casks. Sadly, there are only 1,000+ cases of this wine. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a bouquet of barbecue spices, creamy oak, melted licorice, and copious quantities of black currant and cherry fruit. This opulent, viscous, full-bodied, lusty 1995 reveals substantial tannin that is largely concealed by the wealth of fruit and extract. The head ...Read More »

2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Editors’ Choice * 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."

Produced from a blend of grapes in the Galician D.O. of Monterrei, just south of the city of Ourense, proprietor José Luis Mateo's wine manages to cut a wide swath across the palate, showing impressive yellow fruited richness and depth of flavor while maintaining fresh flavors and a lively acidity on the palate, all the more apparent in this cooler 2013 vintage bottling. Grape varieties in this cuvee include dona blanca, treixadura verdello and others depending on the vintage, and all hail from José Luis Mateo's 14 hectares of vines. This is one of the m...

1987 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pablo Alvarez believes 1987 was an atypical vintage for Vega Sicilia and that initially the Unico was 'very tense, not generous and unusually harsh' but in bottle, he finds that it has become relaxed and whole. A blend of 80% Tinto Fino, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot/Malbec, it has a comparatively introspective bouquet with blackberry, warm gravel, blood orange and raspberry coulis. It opens nicely with aeration although it retains some of its saturnine nature that was apparently remarked upon its release. The palate is medium-bodied with an attr ...Read More »

Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero (2014 release)

Robert Parker: "The Reserva Especials are blended to a house style designed to reflect Vega Sicilia at its very best. The vagaries of vintage (as reflected in Unico) are blended away leaving a wine that is, in my opinion, better than any of the single vintage wines with the possible exception of the 1942."
