1996 Flor de Pingus

SKU #1026355

90 points Wine Spectator: "Muscular and rich. This big red is jammy, with plum, cassis, chocolate and licorice flavors that coat the palate and enrobe the underlying tannins. Powerful and thick, it's not graceful now but certainly impressive. Best from 2001 through 2007." (11/99) According to Robert Parker: "For readers not fortunate enough to latch onto Dominico de Pingus, there is Flor de Pingus, made in far more abundant quantities. Both the 1995 and 1996 are outstanding wines. The 1996 Fleur de Pingus exhibits more structure, grip, and spice than the 1995, as well as intensely-concentrated fruit, full body, and outstanding purity and harmony. Bravo to proprietor Peter Sisseck for these extraordinary Spanish wines!" (10/97)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
