Light purple. Blackberry and mulberry scents, with cracked pepper and pungent herbs adding complexity. Brisk dark berry flavors are enlivened by taut minerality, giving the wine a refreshing quality. Focused, pure and sweet on the finish.

The 2004 Mibal Seleccion is a barrel selection of the best lots and spent 14 months in French oak. It further raises the bar with its saturated, glass-coating purple color, super-expressive, exotic nose of pain grille, spice box, wild blueberry, smoked meat, and licorice. On the palate, this thick and opulent wine has gobs of spicy black fruit flavors, enough structure for 4-6 years of further evolution, and a beautifully delineated, long finish. It should drink well through 2020. A true "garage" Bodegas (the winery is in a garage in the town of Roa), these small production cuvees of 100% Tempranillo are uniformly outstanding.


Winemaker's Notes:

Mibal Seleccion is a wine made by Bodegas Hornillos Ballesteros, a small garage in the town of Roa within the Ribera del Duero DO region. A "triple selection" wine, Mibal Seleccion is composed of a selection from the best vines, the best bunches and the best berries within each bunch. The grapes come from a special vineyard in the village of Anguix owned by oenologists Miguel Hornillos and Javier Ballesteros. The vines are mostly over eighty years old and are planted in sandy soils to produce an inky colored wine of concentration and flavor. Great friends, Miguel and Javier are genuine "garagiste" winemakers with a long family tradition of grape growing. Eco-friendly vineyard work and a methodical selection of grapes are essential to the unique character and quality of their wines. Miguel's sister and Javier's fiance?e Cristina Hornillos is the third proprietor and the "heart and soul" of Hornillos Ballesteros-MiBal. In the adjacent villages of Anguix and Roa, the vineyards are situated at 806 meters (2,644 ft.) elevation, within the Burgos subregion of Ribera del Duero (Zone 2). The small "micro" winery is located in Roa.
