Cillar de Silos Red Blend Ribera del Duero Crianza 2004

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Torre Silo 2004, 16mo oak, Sample taken from bottling tank. Deeper richer purple color. The nose immediately shows chocolate, with an anise underbelly followed by raspberry and dark cherry. In the mouth this is a rich wint with very fin tannins that remain firm and a integrated acidity. Flavors of chocolate, burnt wood, raspberry, blackcherry, currants, and burnt raisen(carmelized?), vanilla and spice. The finish lingers on and on. Truly a great wine from a great vintage. 4-5/5 [NR]

In Quintana de Pidio and Gumiel de Mercado rise the Cillar de Sillos vineyards, 48 hectares of the country’s red variety (Tempranillo), situated on slopes and surrounded by woodland. Due to the use of the best planting density (2,800 stocks per hectare) and the cultivation techniques of green pruning and cluster thinning, it means that production does not exceed 3,500 kg per hectare, in this way we achieve the optimum conditions for production and subsequent ageing of our wines. The grape harvest on the lands of Ribera del Duero is, with its century-old tradition, more than just a ritual, it is a festival. In the Cillar de Sillos vineyards, years of experience combine with the most modern technical resources in order to determine the optimum harvesting date. Due to its mild climate and the maturity of the grapes, October is the most favourable month for these tasks. Our wines come from grapes with the right maturity index, a good acid ratio and optimum colour intensity. The fruit of Ribera del Duero, is harvested by hand, as it has been for centuries, and transported to our wine cellars in boxes, to prevent the berries from being crushed or split. Read less
