Bodegas Emilio Moro Tempranillo Ribera del Duero 2005
[92 pts Robert Parker] The reasonably priced 2004 Emilio Moro is a terrific Ribera del Duero aged in equal parts French and American oak prior to bottling. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a projected nose of blackberries currants cherries smoky oak and crushed rocks. Terrific texture super purity an opulent full-bodied palate and a long heady finish suggest it will keep for 7-8 years.
Emilio Moro, the founder of Bodegas Emilio Moro, was born in Pesquera de Duero, a wine area of time-honoured traditions, where some of the flagship wines of the Ribera del Duero appellation are now produced. It was in this year that the winerys first vineyard, Finca Resalso, was planted.
Opened and drank an '05 in April '10. It was very refined, at what I would consider a near perfect age. Wonderful deep purple color, smooth, fruity palate, with a leathery, spicy finish that lingered with just the right amount of dryness. Paired with spaghetti.
