2001 Bodegas Uvaguilera Aguilera "Palomero" Ribera del Duero

SKU #1009068 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The profound 2001 Palomero boasts an opaque ruby/purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of sweet saddle leather, smoke, herbs, blackberries, creme de cassis, truffles, and graphite. One of the most prodigious Ribera del Dueros I have tasted, it offers great precision, fabulous concentration, and a long, 40+ second finish. (RP)  (6/2005)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark, full red. Raspberry, blackberry, graphite, violet, licorice, game and sexy oak tones of smoke and baking spices on the nose. Supple and sweet if a bit youthfully aggressive, with intense dark berry and coffee flavors complicated by spicy oak and a wild gamey nuance. Boasts very good palate presence and finishes with substantial tongue-clenching tannins and very good length. Isaac Fernandez, enologist for Bodegas Mauro, consults here. (from tempranillo vines between 70 and 80 years of age planted at an altitude of 700 meters; aged entirely in new oak, two-thirds French and one-third American). (ST) 92+  (10/2004)
