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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ruby-red. Musky aromas of berry skin and cherry, with complicating notes of dried flowers and herbs. Firm on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering sweet red fruit flavors and a subtle peppery quality. Sweeter on the anise-tinged finish, where the cherry element lingers with good intensity. This will be drinking well soon, or could even be enjoyed now with a little aeration.

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 varietyrsquo;s name further down the river in Portugalrsquo;s Douro). Itrsquo;s also showing substantial oak, especially in the smoky, bacony aroma. This seems pushed to a Port-like ripeness and hasnrsquo;t yet fleshed out to carry all that ripeness. Age it to allow the fruit to mellow as it absorbs some of the oak.
