2013 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero

SKU #1233662 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I’ve loved this wine in the past and the 2013, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak. What’s amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-expensive Darnajou barrels. For $20 this is another amazing offering from Spain and from importer Eric Solomon.

This is my favorite Pruno to date. We have sold tons of earlier vintages, but it is always gratifying when the latest truly is the greatest and we can confidently opine as much! Given the relatively cooler growing season, the 2013 Pruno has lovely aromatics, savory dark fruits with a spicy, almost leathery quality, as well as some balanced oak notes such as roast espresso and grilled bread. This is not as soft and fruit forward as the 2012; instead it has a bit more acidity, more tone. Structured and serious but very tasty to drink right now if you so choose. Lovely, expressive, and true to Ribera del Duero, this is one Pruno that you will want to drink!

For those enamored with old-school earthy Spanish wines, or the expressive rusticity of honest wines from the Ribera del Duero, this wine is a gem! Deep, earthy forest aromas give way to dark fruit and game notes on the palate. As the wine opens up, the fruit expands and develops deeper, intricate spice notes. Truly a top-tier wine despite its playful name.
