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 »

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 »

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 »

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)

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 »

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.

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)

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 »

2001 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque ruby/purple-colored, firmly-structured 2001 Pingus is more closed and backward than the extravagantly rich, flamboyant 2000. It offers great fruit on the attack along with huge body, and notes of grilled meats intermixed with Provencal herbs, pepper, spice box, cigar smoke, and copious quantities of barbecue smoke-infused blackberry and cassis flavors. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2028. (RP)" (4/2004) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright ruby-red. Cherry, licorice and smoked meat at the outset; then exploded with raspberry fruit. Lus ...Read More »

1995 Bodegas Reyes "Teofilo Reyes" Tinto Cosecha Ribera del Duero

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 Bodegas Reyes, which is about to be released, is a highly promising wine. Reyes, who practices malolactic fermentation in small casks, uses 100% Tinta del Pais grapes (from 40-year old vines), and aims for maximum extraction and little or no manipulation (this wine is bottled unfiltered). The 1995 exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, followed by a terrific nose of black fruits, licorice, spice, and smoke. The wine is dense, rich, and full-bodied, with no heaviness or overbearing, astringent tannin. Everything is seamless in this beautifully mad ...Read More »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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, although the quick evolution of the bottle once opened made me hesitate about its drinking window. Drink 2014-2024. (LG)" (8/2015) 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 ...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.

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.

2000 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The millennial Pingus is a fabulous wine from Peter Sisseck. It is endowed with a riveting, intense, vivacious bouquet of liquorice, creme de cassis, peppermint and kirsch and blossoms in the glass. The palate is fully loaded with glycerine-rich black fruit that lends it an unctuous texture that is neatly counterbalanced by requisite acidity. This is the Pingus that the 1998 wanted to be. (NM)" (8/2012) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby to the rim. Initially cool aromas of blackberry, coffee, mocha and lead pencil; showed a chocolatey aspect with 24 hours in the recorked bottle ...Read More »

2006 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pingus is a spectacular effort. A glass-staining saturated opaque purple, it delivers an other-worldly perfume of smoke, lavender, mineral, scorched earth, and an amalgam of kinky black fruits. Voluptuous on the palate in a measured way, it has superb balance, layered, complex flavors, ripe tannin that is entirely covered by the fruit, and a decade of aging potential. This monumental wine will evolve effortlessly for 10-15 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036.

2005 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Pingus is the most powerful of this series (power being a major characteristic of the top 2005s in the DO). It offers up a perfume beginning to develop some complexity, terrific volume and richness on the palate, and a lengthy, pure finish. This is a great wine that should have a 40 year lifespan. Dominio de Pingus is located in the La Horra region of Ribera del Duero. Owner/winemaker, Peter Sisseck, an oenologist originally from Denmark, started the estate in 1995.

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 »

1998 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

92-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose of black- and redcurrant, raspberry, Cuban tobacco, minerals, brown spices and currant leaf. Large-scaled but sharply delineated, though less sweet and a bit heavier than the '99. Shows the intriguing Provençal herb component that I've found in just about every vintage of Pingus. Finishes very long, with firm acids and tannins. With 48 hours in the recorked bottle, this showed exotic spices and white pepper, and a Burgundian finesse. Perhaps not quite as thick as I thought a year ago; or perhaps it is simply overw ...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 »

1996 Bodegas Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero Crianza

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.
