1995 Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero

SKU #1048630 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. This wine is a sexy, exotic wine that could be called Spanish Pomerol. The 1995 Crianza (14.6% alcohol) presents a saturated plum color, followed by a knock-out nose of melted chocolate and blackberry fruit, a lush, voluptuous texture, low acidity, and gobs of glycerin and fruit. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2000)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Superripe, slightly gamey aromas of black raspberry, plum, animal fur and stewed tomato. Very lush, thick and concentrated; as seamless as liquid velvet. Sweet fruit retains impressive freshness despite a high pH, thanks to firm underlying structure. Very long, superripe finish features lush tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/1999)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Nearly black, this Tempranillo-based wine shows aromas of blackberries and licorice along with a generous helping of oak. Structured and intense, it should age well. Reminiscent of consultant Peter Sisseck's Dominico de Pingus, and at one-fifth the price. Inner quote mark (11/1999)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This lush, velvety Spanish red offers a wide range of flavors, from chocolate and toast to plums, cherries and tobacco. The tannins are firm and well integrated, the concentration rich, yet the structure graceful. Should bloom with some time in the bottle. (TM) Inner quote mark (9/1998)
