1996 Bodegas Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero Crianza

SKU #1238806 93 points Vinous

 Saturated ruby-red. Expressive, pungent aromas of roasted black raspberry and dark chocolate, with floral, menthol and spice notes. A major mouthful of suave, generous, but sharply defined fruit; thoroughly ripe, sweet dark berry, chocolate and game flavors coat the entire palate. A complex minerally quality emerged with aeration. Very concentrated and very long; finishes with firm but ripe and even tannins. Try this wine alongside a flight of top California Cabs. (ST)  (11/1999)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This project, from a large estate in Ribera del Duero, has the gifted Danish winemaker, Peter Sisseck (of Pingus fame), as the winemaker. Produced from extremely low yields (15-20 hectoliters per hectare), this offering is a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. (RP)  (2/2000)

- 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.
