Terrible wine! I bought a case in 2010, and by December 2012 - it had turned to vinegar!! Five other wine drinking friends also found it undrinkable! And the wine was stored in a wine cooler. Avoid buying this crap!

    I purchased a case of this 2006 Creta tempranillo in 2010. In December of 2012, I opened 2 bottles for 5 of my wine drinking friends. This wine had become totally undrinkable!!! Pure vinegar! And the wine was stored in a properly maintained wine cooler. This was THE WORST WINE PURCHASE I have ever made! Avoid this wine like the plague. so much for the so-called expert (Robert Parker) giving this a rating of 90. This wine is truly disgusting! DO NOT PURCHASE!!

    A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of pencil shavings, espresso, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits.

    WA 90 IWC 90 Pts - Winemaker's Notes - Tank fermented 100% Tempranillo that has been aged in older American and French oak. Picked from a 70 year old vineyard located 2,700 ft. in elevation. "Creta" means "Chalk" which is an important mineral component found in the top vineyards of the Ribera del Duero.

    The 2007 Creta Roble is 100% Tempranillo aged 4andndash;5 months on neutral French and American oak. Purple-colored it exhibits a brooding bouquet of mineral, spice box, violets, and assorted black fruits. On the palate it is medium to full-bodied with exceptional volume for its humble price. Smooth-textured, dense, and savory, this nicely balanced effort may well evolve for 1andndash;2 years but can be enjoyed now. It is an outstanding value.

    The 2006 Roble is sourced from a single vineyard at 850 meters of elevation, the highest vineyard in Ribera del Duero. The wine was aged for 4 to 5 months in French and American oak. Purple/black in color, the nose reveals cedar, mineral, damp earth, and assorted black fruits. Powerful on the palate, this tannic, structured effort has superb depth and grip and should evolve for 3ndash;4 years. Drink it from 2011 to 2020.
