Funky and leathery, and with a bit of ass in the glass this smells great. Sure it’s going to be a polarizing wine but life would suck without wines that smell like this in the mix. There’s surprising freshness here as well with smoke and coffee accents framing a core of spicy blackberry and almost strawberry toned fruit that picks up hints of chinese five spice and soy in the glass. Medium light bodied on entry, light and elegant in the mouth. The tannins here have melted away but this remains fresh and surprisingly pretty in the mouth with lovely bitter, wild cherry accented fruit that shows a bit of a beefy edge. The tannins do build in the mouth, nicely balanced by tart acids that bring out the sour plumy fruit on the palate. The finish is driven by ink and mineral flavors with a hint of wild blueberry on the finale. This is at early peak and is delicious today, having retained tons of fresh fruit and gained nuance and textural harmony with age. It’s a surprisingly delicate and somewhat refined Ribera, though it retains the powerful tannins these wines are known for. 90pts

Condado de Haza is another Alejandro Fernandez (of Pesquera fame) property also located in Ribera del Duero. Purple-colored, it offers up fragrant aromas of cedar, tobacco, black currants and blackberry. There is a supple mouth-feel and generous cherry and black fruit flavors and enough ripe tannins to ensure good longevity. Drink this hedonistic effort now and over the next 10-12 years. WS

Great Spanish wine and when you factor in the price, it is unbeatable. 4.5

A wine from Alejandro Fernandez that is great introduction to Ribera Del Duero. Big and bold with good character imparted from spending time in American Oak.

Deep rich purple in color. Nose is strong vanilla oak with mineral, pepper and cherry. Good body with dry high tannin finish. In the mouth the black fruit, earth, light clove and black pepper all seem overwhelmed by the oak. Maybe this will calm down with time, but the oak it seems to overshadow the nice fruit within. alt=3 [NR]

The 2008 Crianza is purple-colored with an attractive bouquet of cedar, mineral, earth notes, espresso, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with ample ripe fruit, a firm structure, good depth, and plenty of flavor.Consume with lamb and suckling pig roasts, lamb chops cooked over vine cutting, semi cured goat cheeses, and oven raosted fowl.

The dark, brambly aromas are subtly overlaid with tobacco, vanilla and dried spices. Earthy notes bolster the black cherries and plums on the palate. Finishes with firm tannins, but theyrsquo;re mellow enough to make this wine drinkable now with rare beef or lamb.

Lush, modern red. Toast and vanilla flavors wrap around blackberry and plum flavors, supported by ripe, full tannins and a generous texture. Itrsquo;s balanced and lively. Best from 2004 through 2010.

An ambitious tinto fino, this is red-fruited as ripe roriz (the variety's name further down the river in Portugal's Douro). It's also showing substantial oak, especially in the smoky, bacony aroma. This seems pushed to a Port-like ripeness and hasn't yet fleshed out to carry all that ripeness. Age it to allow the fruit to mellow as it absorbs some of the oak.

Condado de Haza, part of the Pesquera group, focuses its production on a hillside vineyard of gravel and limestone, planted towards the end of the 1980s by Alejandro Fernandaacute;ndez. The vines tend to give wines of great concentration and aging potential andmdash; like this intense tempranillo with mineral aromas and surprisingly fresh cherry scents. The delicious fruit bathes in tannins as firm as steel. Give this five years in the cellar for that structure to mellow.
