Flor de Pingus 2006
In the context of the world's great wines Flor de Pingus is a stupendous value a steal. It is 100% Tempranillo from very low yields and is aged 14 months in 100% new French barriques. Opaque purple in color it emits already complex aromas of smoke toast coffee blueberry blackberry and licorice. Lush on the palate super ripe and sweet as well as multi-dimensional this great effort can be drunk now but I'd opt for cellaring it for 6-8 years to allow further evolution. [The Wine Advocate]
External Reviews for Flor de Pingus
Ruby-red. Strong floral and mineral scents complicate blackberry and cherry on the nose. Vibrant red berry and cherry flavors are given support by dusty tannins and become sweeter with air. Very fresh and precise, with excellent mineral snap and thrust. I like this wine's delicate touch, and the finish is clean and very long. Given the tariff for its big brother, this is almost a bargain.
