Alejandro Fernandez Ribera del Duero Pesquera Crianza 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points James Suckling: Very bright, ripe and nicely captured ripeness, this has dark cherry and plum as well as a stony edge and some raw earthiness. The palate has energetic appeal, harmonious fruit and oak, and a dark berry and chocolate finish. Drink now. (7/24/17)

Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez:
More than a working philosophy, the four wineries that form the wine heritage of Alejandro Fernández –the Pesquera Corporation– share the same story of love for the viniculture that time helped to perfect. The bonds with its home land are clearly expressed in the symbol of the group: the image of the Arch and the Tower of Pesquera de Duero, typical of its flagships, the “Tinto Pesquera’.

Ribera del Duero doesn't get much better. I purchased this at rock-bottom price at www.uhrskov-vine.dk/category/spanien-ribera-del-duero-124/ and the wine just keeps getting better. Ageworthy, classy and compelling!

A great wine. A deep red color with a long lasting finish. Flavours of plum, blackcurrent mixed with a little redcurrant. Fantastic with all red meats and a great example of a superb Spainish wine

`Bright ruby. Exotically perfumed aroma of red berries, cherry, spicecake and sandalwood becomes richer with air, picking up plum compote and bitter chocolate qualities that carry onto the palate. A rich, fleshy style that betrays no rough edges, as the fruit sucks up the tannins. This has the depth to age but there's plenty of complexity already. Serve it with a peppery, grilled piece of lamb. 92 points. Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (07/08).

Tried this with some slightly spicy mini-samosas. First sniff was cinnamony. It was bold, but very smooth. I really enjoyed this one.

Intensives Purpur mit rubinroten Reflexen. Backpflaumen und edle Tabaknoten in der unverkennbaren Pesquera-Nase, auch Birnbrot, Brombeergelee und schwarzer Holunder dahinter. Druckvoller Auftakt mit viel schwarzer Frucht und feiner Schokoladensüsse, enorme Gaumenfülle mit viel Schmelz und perfekt eingebundenen Tanninen, Pflaumen in allen Facetten, nun auch Amarenakirschen und ansprechende Brotkrustentöne, tiefgründig und finessenreich zugleich, einzigartiger Trinkgenuss bis zum letzen Schluck.

Alejandro Fernandez has worked his magic once again. The Pesquera estate has returned to its former glory: it has been on fire since the historic 2000 vintage, and this bottling may be their best effort yet.

Dunkles Kirschrot. In der Nase leicht ledrige Noten, würzig, fruchtig, blumige Nuancen von Veillchen. Am Gaumen konzentriert, dicht, fruchtig, gute Struktur, ausbalancierte Tannine und einem langanhaltenden Abgang.

Tiefgründiges Purpur-Schwarz. Dörrfrüchte und Nussbrot in der korinthigen Nase, auch Lebkuchen und Datteln, an klassischen St. Emilion erinnernd. Samtige Textur im saftigen Gaumen, feine Tabakwürze schwingt mit, gute Balance in der geleeartigen Mitte, reife Tannine und typische Ribera-Frische, bis am Schluss viel Korinthen, Honignüsse und Zwetschgenkompott.

Leuchtendes Rubin mit brillanter Mitte. Pflaumen und Dörrbirnen in der typischen Nase, Kirschenkompott, Früchtebrot und feine Nussmischung dahinter. Fülliger Gaumen mit samtigen Tanninen und zartpelzigem Extrakt, wieder viel blaue und schwarze Frucht, auch Baumnuss und Roibusch, portweinartige Pflaumenlikörwärme und Korinthen-Schokolade bis ins lange Finale.

Alejandro Fernandez Pesquera Crianza 2006: Dieser grandiose ausgewogen duftende Wein ist limitert und nur für kurze Zeit erhältlich. Ein sattes Kirschrot mit wundervollen violetten Reflexen werden dem Auge präsentiert. Mit der Frucht wurde respektvoll umgegangen, ausgesprochen rücksichtsvoll verhalten sich die Holzaromen des Fassausbaues. Der Alkohol ist gut eingebunden und schmeckt wunderbar balanceiert. Mit kräftigem Aroma und einer frischen Säure schmeckt er nach Kräutern und Leder, schwarzer Pflaume und Kirsche und ist angenehm langanhaltend im Abgang.Genießen Sie diesen Wein zu Käse von Kuh- oder Ziegenmilch oder Geflügel, Braten und Kalbsfleisch.Weingut: Alejandro FernandezRegion: Spanien Rebsorte: TempranilloInhalt: 0.75 l Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Tempranillo
