The 2005 Ercavio Roble is a remarkable value. Produced from 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo), this is a custom cuveacute;e selected by importer Eric Solomon, and was aged for 5 months in French and American oak. Purple colored, with fragrant spice box, tobacco, blueberry, and blackberry aromas, this full-bodied effort has gobs of ripe fruit, a firm structure, and a 40-second finish, not bad value for a sawbuck. Although this well-made wine will surely evolve for 2ndash;3 years, who will have the patience? This is one to purchase by the case.
Colorful, ribald and jammy wine that gets more floral and balanced as it opens. What starts out big and aggressive settles with time and should work with a wide range of foods. Sappy fruit is the forerunner, and thereandrsquo;s heat as well.
There are 10,000 cases of the 2007 Ercavio Roble, made up of 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo) and aged for five months in French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple in color, it delivers an expressive nose of cedar, earth notes, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. Thick, dense, and opulent on the palate, it has gobs of savory black fruit, licorice and spice notes, enough structure to evolve for 1ndash;2 years, and a lengthy finish. It totally over-delivers for its humble price. This is one to buy by the case.
With Tempranillorsquo;s capability to produce wines with delicacy, elegance, and an enticing fruit profile, there developed a romanticized (likely untrue) tale that this Spanish grape is a variant of Francersquo;s Pinot Noir. If true, however, we may have found the louder, more gregarious cousin in the 2003 Ercavio. Both immediate and refined, this young wine insists upon its elegance with intense aromas of blueberry, and a pleasing palate of moderate acidity and notes of spice box. An incredible value.
Deep ruby. Anise-accented blackberry and cassis aromas offer lovely straightforward appeal. Supple and sweet, with deep dark berry flavors supported by gentle acidity. Finishes with good grip and a lingering bitter chocolate quality. This is more serious than most wines in its price range.
A complex nose of black fruit and spice complements the palate, which is full-bodied, displaying rich notes of dark fruit and vanilla. Great spice accents rich blackberry, and finishes in a huge way, with hints of licorice and concentrated black cherry.
Colorful, ribald and jammy wine that gets more floral and balanced as it opens. What starts out big and aggressive settles with time and should work with a wide range of foods. Sappy fruit is the forerunner, and there’s heat as well.
