Finca Villacreces Tempranillo Blend Ribera del Duero 2001

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The prodigious 2001 Nebro is a limited production, 100% Tempranillo cuvee. Dense purple to the rim, with an extraordinary smoky nose interwoven with hints of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, blackberries, and scorched earth, it is a heady, ripe, full-bodied offering with superb concentration, balance, and well-integrated acidity, wood, tannin, and alcohol. This is an extraordinary effort from a mythical vintage in Spain. Consume it over the next 10ndash;15 years.

Good deep ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and graphite; showed almost Brunello-like dried fruits, chestnut and lavender with extended aeration. Penetrating and powerful, with perfectly integrated acidity intensifying the wineandrsquo;s extremely rich flavors and accentuating the impression of energy in the mouth. As sweet as this is today, itandrsquo;s also primary and utterly fresh, with perfectly judged oakiness. Expands and builds impressively on the back end. This was better every time I went back to it. If you can find and afford this wine, Iandrsquo;d give it at least four or five years in the cellar.
