Alonso del Yerro 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The wine at Hacienda Monasterio is made by Peter Sisseck of Dominio Pingus. The vineyards are in the tenderloin of the region between Pesquera del Duero and Valbuena. The 2005 Crianza is made up of 80% Tinto Fino, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot. Opaque purple-colored, the nose offers up floral notes of lilies and violets, mineral, black cherry and blackberry which jump from the glass. This is followed by a plush, balanced, savory wine with gobs of spicy black fruits, and a long finish. Give it 2-3 years to round out and drink it through 2025... 93" WA 02/08

Deep ruby. Rich dark berry aromas are complemented by espresso, dark chocolate and licorice. Youthfully brooding flavors of deep blackberry and cassis are framed by solid tannins. Gains sweetness on the finish, which leaves a trace of candied rose. T... Stephen Tanzer. A Tempranillo wine from Ribera Del Duero in Spain. 2005 Alonso del Yerro Ribera del Duero 750ml

The 2005 Alonso del Yerro "Maria" was aged for 18 months sur-lie with batonnage. It too has a brooding perfume but is a bit more layered, forward, and immediately pleasurable. There is plenty of ripe tannin and a 60+ second finish. Give it 5-7 years ... Robert Parker.
