Barco de Piedra Ribera del Duero 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Fresh, aromatic, and elegant, Barco de Piedra is 100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero. Vibrant ruby in color with overt raspberry, violet and black cherry notes on the nose. Medium in body (not tannic or astringent) and perfectly balanced. The finish picks up cedar, herb and a touch of earthiness, and lasts for a few minutes after the last sip. Here is yet another example of Spainandrsquo;s red wines that are miles ahead of any competitor for both quality and price.

The 2008 Barco de Piedra is 100% Tempranillo aged for 5 months in French and American oak. A glass-staining opaque purple, it offers up an enticing bouquet cedar, spice box, violets, cassis, and black cherry. This is followed by a rich, flavorful, firm wine that will evolve for 1-2 years. This lengthy bargain will drink well through 2015. It is what over-delivering is all about.
