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!!

    The 2007 Creta Roble is 100% Tempranillo aged 4-5 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 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. It is an outstanding value.

    Bright ruby. Complex bouquet displays raspberry, blackberry and an exotic blood orange quality. Fresh and spicy, with lively red fruit flavors, good mineral snap and no obvious tannins. An elegant and precise wine that offers excellent clarity and finishing sweetness. And a solid value.

    Glass-staining ruby. Spicy dark berry and cherry-vanilla aromas are complemented by anise, tobacco and herbs. Juicy cherry and blackcurrant flavors are pure and nicely focused, with no obvious tannins and a seductively sweet quality. Reminds me a bit of a Pesquera wine. Finishes on a lively bittersweet cherry note, with very good persistence and lingering spice and vanilla notes.

    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 3-4 years. Drink it from 2011 to 2020.
