2012 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2012 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from a vineyard situated adjacent to one of the famous vineyards utilized to produce Spain’s greatest red wine, Vega Sicilia. Made from relatively old vines, the 2012 Pruno is a sexy, opulent, voluptuously textured effort that spent 12 months in two-year-old French oak barrels. Reminiscent of a baby Vega Sicilia, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as notes of high-class, unsmoked cigar tobacco, creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and spice box. Full-bodied, deep, velvety texture ...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 »

2013 Pago de los Capellanes Joven Ribera del Duero

Pago del los Capellanes consistently produces some of the tastiest Ribera del Duero wines around. These are modern wines with great fruit expression, as well as classical Tempranillo flavors and Ribera del Duero structure. In this young, 5 month oak aged red, there are typical dark fruited, spicy and licorice inflected aromas which lead to a juicy, rich palate punctuated by nicely built tannins that frame the wine without taking it over. Perhaps a bit more snap and cut than usual in the colder 2013 vintage. This is a lovely, inexpensive example of young ... Read More »

2009 Valderiz Ribera del Duero

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*The Enthusiast 100 of 2014* This is an exemplary RDD with an ideal mix of leather, black fruit, spice and toast aromas. The palate is free-flowing, with balance and power but also elegance. Flavors of oaky toast, mixed spices, licorice and molasses come with ribald berry and cassis, while the finish shows blackened toast, bitter chocolate, warmth and length. Drink this ideal Spanish red now through 2023." (12/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The fabulous 2009 Valderiz comes from 30- to 70-year-old vines and is blended with 5% Albillo before aged for 20 months in mainly French oak ( ...Read More »

2011 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Fresh cherry, dark berries and vanilla on the highly perfumed nose, with a hint of woodsmoke building in the glass. Sappy and nicely focused, offering zesty bitter cherry and blackberry flavors underscored by a mineral element. Becomes fleshier and sweeter on the clinging finish, which features supple tannins and a touch of smoked meat." (9/2014) K&L Notes: 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 pr... Read More »

2010 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Reserva Ribera del Duero

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Explosive, oak-spiced aromas of cherry compote, blackberry, vanilla and potpourri, with a hint of smoked meat slowly emerging with aeration. Smooth, sweet and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors that are given lift and spine by juicy acidity. Shows a sexy floral quality on the long, smoky finish, which leaves notes of vanilla and bitter cherry behind." (9/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Reserva with aromas of red and black fruit, feels more Atlantic than Mediterranean, with some hints of coconut and vanilla. The palate is mediu ...Read More »

2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
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."

2009 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Valbuena was harvested early, the result of a warm summer. It’s mostly Tempranillo complemented with 5% Merlot. The wine matured for five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 16 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), four months in used barrels and then four more months in the vats before being bottled in May 2011. 180,000 bottles produced. It has some reductive notes and would benefit from some time in a decanter, where you’d start appreciating its background of cherries which feels very classical and serious. The palate is ...Read More »

2012 Dominio de Pingus "Flor de Pingus" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Flor de Pingus is produced with the fruit from 16 plots of vineyards in La Horra (Burgos) which are vinified by plot in small, 4,000-liter stainless steel vats mostly with indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in barrels (50% new, 50% second-use) where the wine aged for 16-18 months. It-s again an austere closed red, with a shy nose that needs pulling. What you get is very harmonious and elegant, no exuberance here, but classical proportions, perfectly integrated oak and superb balance. A very worthy version of Flor, a wine ...Read More »

Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero (2012 release)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I must confess that I am not such an ardent supported of the Reserva Especiale as others. It is not that I dislike the blend, but I find it less intellectual satisfying without a temporal "anchor" i.e. vintage. 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 ...Read More »

2001 Balbas Reserva Ribera del Duero, Spain

93 points and a "Highly Recommended" designation from Wine Spectator: "This spicy red shows an alluring mix of ripe fruit, with more mature flavors of tobacco, leather and cedar. The tannins are well-integrated and softening, while the acidity is still fresh and crisp. Elegant and long. Drink now through 2015." (Nov. 30, 2007) 90 points from Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Aristocratic and enchanting, this leads with vibrant, floral strawberry and cherry aromas. The acidity feels like a fresh breeze over a layer of juicy and simple red fruit. Try it with quail... Read More »

2004 Vinedos Alonso del Yerro Alonso del Yerro, Ribera del Duero

94 points from Robert Parker! He says, "The 2004 Alonso del Yerro is 100% Tempranillo that was aged on its lees for 12 months in French oak prior to bottling. It is a seamless, opulent, voluptuous red boasting a flamboyant perfume of espresso roast, sweet black cherries, creme de cassis, licorice, and new oak. A stunning texture, superb ripeness, low acidity, silky tannin, and a long, heady finish indicate it should drink well for 10-12 years. This superb offering suggests this producer from the somewhat over-crowded Ribera del Duero appellation deserves... Read More »

2005 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Mauro is made up of 97% Tempranillo and 3% Syrah. Opaque purple-colored, it reveals a brooding but enticing bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, tar, and assorted black fruits. This leads to a layered, plush, mouth-filling, sweetly fruited wine with tons of flavor. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and its finish is long and pure. It can be enjoyed now but will continue to provide pleasure through 2025." (02/08) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Seductively p... Read More »

1997 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Blackberry, cassis, sweet butter, vanilla and a hint of mint on the slightly floral nose. Rich, sweet entry, then lovely sweetness and vinosity on the palate. Not as round as a riper-year Pesquera but has just enough flesh to buffer its acids. Finishes quite long, with a bit of unresolved acidity and notes of bitter chocolate and espresso. (ST)" (11/1999) Wine Spectator: "This traditional-style red is rich with plum, prune, coffee and meat notes and thick with ripe tannins. It's more muscular than graceful. Best after 2003. 40,000 cases made." (11/2000)

2004 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004, from what appears to be a great vintage, is opaque purple in appearance. It emits scintillating aromas of smoke, toast, herbs, kirsch, and black fruits. It is a full-bodied, large-scaled effort with oodles of fruit and enough structure to age effortlessly for 6-8 years and drink well for a decade thereafter." (02/07)

2003 Bodegas Mauro Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Austere, yet hinting at depth and complexity, this compact, powerful, balanced red teases with plum, mineral, floral and toasty flavors and promises more pleasure to come. Not showy, but all is harmonious and well-integrated." (11/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Smoky, ripe aromas of cherry liqueur, blackberry and tobacco are just this side of roasted. Lush and fleshy, the dark fruit flavors showing an exotic spice quality, with notes of floral oil and incense. Fleshy, broad and long on the finish, the supple tannins giving focus to the ripe cherry, candied plum and cured ...Read More »

2002 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

(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 »
