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 »

2011 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Valbuena was fermented plot by plot, something they started after a deep soil study in the 2010 vintage. 2011 was a very warm and ripe vintage in the zone, and the challenge was to keep the freshness. 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. (LG)" (10/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Flavors of black cherry, kirs ...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 »

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 »

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 »

2009 Viña Sastre "Pago de Santa Cruz" Gran Reserva Ribera del Duero

From the importer: "Viña Sastre's premier vineyard is the Pago de Santa Cruz, one of the oldest in the zone. This vineyard, at 900 meters elevation, is the sole source of the wine of the same name. Every few years a remarkable vintage comes around and Jesus commemorates it with a Gran Reserva version of his Pago de Santa Cruz. This wine is aged for 30 months in a selection of older oak barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered."

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 »
