2014 Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero

SKU #1319416 93 points James Suckling

 A dense and layered red with meat, chocolate, dried berry and walnut aromas and flavors. This has a full body and velvety tannins. A little old-school but what you expect in a wine from this producer. Drink now or hold.  (7/2017)

Wine Spectator

 Savory notes of black olive and licorice wrap around a core of bright cherry fruit in this lively red, which has fresh acidity, with modest tannins anchoring the round texture. (TM, Web Only-2017)

From the provincia of Burgos, the largest of the sub-zones of Ribera del Duero, Condado de Haza is Pesquera's sister winery and wine. This 2014 vintage shows great delineation and freshness, with aromas of pomegranates and freshly cracked peanut shells. On the palate it is red fruited, perhaps a bit edgier and more tense than usual, but sure to open up with a decant, and likely to continue improving for some time. Very good Ribera del Duero.

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.
