Finca Villacreces Tempranillo Blend Ribera del Duero 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The stunning Finca Villacreces estate is located in Quintanilla de Onesimo (Valladolid) on the ‘golden mile’ in the Ribera del Duero DO. Recently purchased by Vina Izadi, the property is bordered by the River Duero to the north and by Vega Sicilia 95%. This 95% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 5% Cabernet Sauvignon wine is deep purple in colour with a complex nose of intense mocha, cranberry and cassis aromas. In the mouth it displays a meaty structure, with plenty of ripe, dark berry fruit, a good balance and a very long finish.

Dieser Wein wurde erstmals 1995 vinifiziert, der damit eine neue Ära auf Finca Villacreces eingeläutet hat: dichte Aubergingenfarbe mit violetter Bordüre. Das Anfangs noch verhaltene Bukett offenbart nach dem Lüften Aromen von reifen, dunklen Waldbeeren, ergänzt mit Nuancen von Vanille-Schoten und Edelholz. Auf dem Gaumen von weicher Textur und mit enorm konzentrierter Frucht von Holunder und Brombeeren. Mit seiner Eleganz und den vielschichtigen Anklängen von Zartbitter-Schokolade, Havanna-Tabak und Kakao erinnert er an einen tollen grossen Bordeaux.

Purpurrote Farbe. In der Nase intensive Fruchtnoten. Am Gaumen Veilchen-, Mocca- und Kaffeenoten, Toast, Likör, wilde blaue und schwarze Beeren. Am Gaumen blumig, würzig, fruchtig mit schön integrierten Tanninen. Ein langer, vollmundiger Abgang.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93The 2005 Tinto is 86% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Merlot which went through malolactic fermentation in barrel and remained in French oak for another 16 months. Purple-colored, the aromatics reveal notes of mocha, coffee, smoke, violets, spice box, wild cherry, and blackberry. Smooth-textured, layered, and well-balanced, this superb effort will continue to evolve for several years and drink well through 2025.

One of the best kept secrets of the Ribera Del Duero, with vineyards sitting next door to those of Vega Sicilia. Before estate bottling began at this winery in 1994, the fruit from the Finca Villacreces went into the wine of its famous neighbors. Made from 100% old-vine Tempranillo.

This plush wine, coming from the Ribera del Duero, is produced from old Tempranillo vines, blended with a small percentage of Cabernet and Merlot. Bright acidity and baking spices prevail on the palate, with underlying notes of black plums and cocoa. This wine is estate bottled from vines located next to those of Vega Sicilia.
