2004 Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos "Ines Vizcarra" Ribera del Duero

SKU #1028857

96 points from the WIne Advocate! They say, "The 2004 Ines (named for another daughter) is also produced from a single vineyard and, again, there are only 20 cases for the American market. Purple-colored and with a super-expressive bouquet, this wine exhibits aromas and flavors of vanilla, smoke, scorched earth, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Sumptuously rich in the mouth with remarkable extraction, this large-scaled wine seems almost elegant with its ripe tannins and silky, fruity finish. Like its sister wine, it can be enjoyed now or stashed away in the cellar for 6-8 years. It should provide pleasure through 2020. Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos was founded in 1991 by “garage” winemaker/viticulturalist Juan Carlos Vizcarra. All of the wines at this estate are 100% Tempranillo. 2/28/2007"

Additional Information:



- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penèdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.


- 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.
