2006 Señorío de P. Peciña "Vendimia Selecionada" Reserva Rioja (Previously $40)

SKU #1246400 92 points Vinous

 Deep red. Powerful, smoke-accented dark berry preserve, incense and vanilla aromas are accented by building mineral and peppery spice. Broad and fleshy on the palate, with ripe blackberry and bitter cherry flavors picking up a sweet floral pastille nuance on the back half. Shows very good depth but comes off as lithe, finishing with strong thrust and supple tannins. After three years of aging in used American oak this wine was bottled and then held for another three years before being released. (JR)  (11/2015)

K&L Notes

Pedro Peciña, former vineyard manager at La Rioja Alta, is at the helm of this family bodega, assisted by his son Pedro. Like all their wines, this is 100% estate fruit, sourced primarily from around San Vicente with a bit of fruit coming from Labastida as well. Tempranillo forms the majority of the blend, with Garnacha and Graciano rounding things out. The Vendimia Seleccionada is a single vineyard wine, hailing from a north facing slope, an orientation which perhaps explains the remarkable poise and freshness of the wine in this warmer vintage. A lovely nose featuring dried orange and spicy dried cherry aromas leads to flavors which are fresh and more linear than the winery's (also excellent) Gran Reserva. This is a textbook traditionally styled Rioja from one of the bodegas most skilled in making these wines. Espectacular! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

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.
