Mibal Tinto 2008
Authentic Garage winery in Roa, Ribera del Duero, where Miguel and Javier take care of the whole process. 2 young guys (and Cristina in charge of PR, Miguel's sister) who know how to work on the vines, with some biodynamic practices and great respect for nature. I loved their wines, and how they approach their work/passion, that is why last time traveling in the area went to visit them. Keep an eye on these wines, they will only improve in future vintages.
External Reviews for Mibal Tinto
The high altitude of the Ribera Del Duero region gives it the cool nights and the hot days that maximize the expression of the Tempranillo grape. At first, the sweet smell of springtime berries, a touch of smoke and vanilla lead you to a medium- to full-bodied wine. The finish is long and layered with raspberries and spice. One of the best values and most versatile wines in the store.
Bright ruby. Smoky raspberry and cherry-cola aromas are complemented by zesty white pepper and rose. Silky and sweet but youthfully tight, showing deep red berry preserve flavors, fine-grained tannins and good spicy bite. Leaves an exotic candied rose note behind on the vibrant, juicy finish. This really deserves a little bottle age.
The 2008 Mibal spent 12 months in French oak. Aromas of cedar, tobacco, spice box, and blackberry lead to a wine with elevated acidity on the palate, good flavors, ample tannin, and enough fruit for balance. Give it 1ndash;2 years to fill out and drink it from 2011 to 2018.
