1996 Bodegas Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero

SKU #1238806 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 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) 93+  (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)
