Editorial Reviews for Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Tempranillo Rioja Rioja Gran Reserva
This is a little ashy on the nose with hints of arugula, blood and carob adding gentle complexity to the nose. The aromas are more savory than fruity but there is a base of raspberry/blackberry fruit here along with well-balanced briary oak. This is easy to drink texturally but it has the same savory, arugula-like flavors on the palate adding compelling complexity to the round yet nervous wine. There are subtle layers of flavor here. It is a little nutty, a little meaty, but then mineral and taut with a hint of rust coming out on the back end with raspberry fruit, licorice and spiky little tannins. The finish is long and zingy with lovely layering of subtle savory and fruity flavors and just a hint of heat on the finale. This is really attractive. It is not rustic but not modernly smooth either, with a mouthfeel that is zesty, sapid and refreshing. Serve this with red meat like lamb. 90pts
Medium red ruby in the glass. The nose shows dark red fruit, leather, and cotton candy. On the palate this really comes alive due to it's balanced acidity and showing of cherry, herbs and spice. A medium long finish. This was a totally different style than the rest of the wines in the flight and although most tasters went toward the robust CDP or Gigondas, the Terrasses held it's own and managed to finish as the favorite wine for two of the seven tasters.
Best tempranillo I've had for $7. Nose is simple but pleasant with berry, vanilla and mineral. Full and round in the mouth, well structured, moderate acid and decent finish. Really simple, successful "International style" red wine with a tempranillo twist. Absolutely not interesting, elegant or sophisticated - but one of my first picks under $10.
No detailed notes but another fine performance from this great QPR. Big and muscular dark fruit tempered by a soft mouth feel that always pleases just about anyone I open this for.
Dark, deep ruby color. Nose is very inviting with spice cookies, fig, lead pencil, beef broth with a hint of skunk. Smooth, medium body. Blackberry fruit, spice and slightly herby. Nice amount of acidity that carries this win perfectly with or without food. Subtle yet present tannin mostly noticeable with the medium length finish. A great buy for the price.
Oh, tannin bomb. Oak, berry, black, rich on the nose. Jammy taut, veggie on the tongue. May be good for oily foods as it would cut through butter with its bitterness. Was priced at $10.99. Try it if you can get it for less.
Very nice wine, smooth, lots of berries
I love this tempranillo so so so much. Awesome price, great backbone - holds its own without being overwhelming. One of my favorite wines that I purchase often. Try this!

Located outside the tiny Rhône town of Mormoriron, Château Pesquié is known for substantial reds like Terrasses, which is dense with earthy raspberry notes and supple tannins.
Ripe and suave, with supple tannins that meld into the plum and boysenberry fruit, all laced with incense, black tea and pastis notes. Dark but pure on the finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now.

One of the top estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Pesquie has been a project for importer Eric Solomon (who creates these custom cuvées for the American marketplace). There are 8,000 cases of the 2004 Cuvée des Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache (60-year old vines) and 30% Syrah (30-year old vines), that is aged in barrel (40%) and tank (60%). This knock-out value is a terrific bistro-styled, food-flexible offering with a huge spice and fruit profile. Smoky, roasted herb notes intermixed with black cherry jam, currant, plum, and spice box aromas jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, richly fruity red. Displaying a seamless integration of acidity and tannin, it should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.
The 2004 Pesquie Terrasses, a blend of 70% Grenache that is 60 years old and 30% Syrah that is 30 years old, all aged in barrel, is an amazing wine for an astonishingly low price. Deep ruby/purple with notes of truffle, tar, blackberry, and cassis, the wine is vibrant, full-bodied, lush, and ideal for drinking over the next 4-5 years. It is nearly too good to be true, and many people familiar with wine in that price range will be absolutely amazed by its sheer concentration and character, so be prepared.
The Ventoux apellation is essentially a Côtes du Rhône sub-region. The wines, consistent with the southern Rhône style, are produced mainly from Grenache and Syrah. Château Pesquié is composed of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Helped along by 14% alcohol, the Grenache shows a typically strong red raspberry liqueur element. But the blend also brings pepper spice, black fruits and a ripe plum flavor. Medium bodied, clear and bright, with a refreshing purity of fruit, this wine represents real authenticity of place and grape. A great dinner wine with food compatibility rating as one of its top assets. Good concentration and lingering flavors.
