2004 Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos "Celia" Ribera del Duero

SKU #1028858

95 points from the WIne Advocate! They say, "The 2004 Celia (named after one of the proprietor’s daughters) is a limited production, single vineyard wine (20 cases for the American market) was aged for 18 months in French oak. It is opaque purple-colored with an expressive nose of smoke, scorched earth, blueberry, blackberry, and licorice. This is followed by a silky-textured wine with gobs of sweet fruit and ripe tannnis. This opulent effort has a very long finish of 45+ seconds. Its hedonistic personality will allow it to be enjoyed now but it can also be cellared for 4-6 years and drunk 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:

Varietal:

Tempranillo

- 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.
Country:

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.
