Finca Villacreces Tempranillo Blend Ribera del Duero 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The purple-colored 2006 Reserva is made up of 86% Tempranillo and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged for 16 months in French oak. The nose displays a brooding aromatic array of Asian spices, damp earth, mineral, blackberry, and violets. Dense and stacked on the palate, the wine is still a bit tightly wound and will benefit from 4-6 years of additional cellaring. Incipiently complex and exceptionally lengthy...94" WA 04/10

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.

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.
