Bodegas Arrocal Tempranillo Ribera del Duero 2009
An opaque ruby colour. Powerful, plentiful, seductive blackberry and blackcurrant aromas including baking spices and floral qualities. Soft, silky and impressively pure, with vibrant dark berry flavours and fine-grained tannins. Surprisingly juicy and persistent with excellent saturation and clarity on the palate.
Well balanced. Red fruits nose and palate. Good wine for the money.
2006 Arrocal Ribera Del Duero-aged 6 months- I am by no means versed in the world of wine and just recently started drinking red wines. This wine wowed me with the first glass. I tasted it straight out of the bottle and then let it decant 1-2 hours. It got better by the minute and I went through 3 bottles in a weekend. I only wish I had purchased more than 4 bottles at the time. I only paid $10.99 online with free shipping. I have added this wine to my love list. In the Denver area it sells for $16-18 a bottle.
at this point in my life, the worst wine i have ever had. if you can call it wine. it tasted like sour garbage. especially if you swish it in your mouth.
Good quality spicy Spanish fruit bomb. $14 88 points WKH
Nice wine for a great price (I paid $11). I think it needed to be paired with some food.
External Reviews for Bodegas Arrocal Tempranillo Ribera del Duero
Focused pure dark berry flavors are brightened by brisk mineral and floral pastille qualities. The wine's fine-grained tannins do not detract from its sweet vivid fruit.
Opaque ruby. Potent mulberry and blueberry aromas expand seductively picking up baking spice and floral qualities. Suave silky and impressively pure with vibrant dark berry flavors saved from the brink of jamminess by bright acidity and fine-grained tannins. Impressively juicy and persistent with excellent palate saturation and clarity. J. Raynolds - S.Tanzer's IWC
The 2005 Arrocal is 100% Tempranillo aged 4 months in a mixture of new and used French and American oak. Purple-colored, it offers up fragrant aromas of cedar, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry. Supple-textured, the wine has gobs of sweet fruit, soft tannins, and excellent balance. Drink this outstanding value over the next 3-5 years.
