User Reviews for Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero

Winemaker's Notes:

Alenza is a special wine made in the tradicional manner, the whole grape clusters being crushed by foot and fermented without prior seperation. Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo. Alcohol: 13,5% Vol. Aging: 23 months in barriques of American oak. Appearance: Attractive, deep red. Bright and clear with noteworthy glyceric and liquid consistency. Nose: Increasing in intensity with bootle age, opening in flavour and complexity and showing great promise for further development. Rich, smoky and wild on the nose, with scents of candied plum, cherry liqueur, charred meat, espresso, tobacco and cigar box. Palate: Full-textured and powerful, finishing dry with intense fruit concentration. Acid, alcohol and dry extract combine for round and rich flavour, the abundant tannins becoming more refined with additional aging. Fruit and fine oak return on the finish, which is lingering and persistent. Powerful, densely packed dark fruit flavors are accented by exotic spice and earthy nuances, and supported by a firm, tannic frame. Although the tannins are nicely absorbed by the rich fruit with some aeration, I'd opt for cellaring this brooding wine for at least another few years, and then serve it with grilled or braised lamb or game.
