External Reviews for Vizcarra Jc
The 2008 J.C. Vizcarra, from a moderately challenging vintage, was the recipient of all the juice that would have gone into the estate's upper-tier wines. It was aged for 15 months in 50% new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, lavender, and blackberry. Ripe, succulent, and structured, it has 2-3 years of aging potential and will provide prime drinking from 2012 to 2020. It is a great value in serious red wine.
The 2004 J.C. Vizcarra is aged for 9 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it offers smoky blueberry and blackberry aromas and flavors. On the palate there are layers of flavor and ample ripe tannins leading to a long, firm finish. This wine has the potential to blossom for 3-5 years and should provide pleasure through 2016.
Inky purple. An expansive bouquet offers scents of blueberry, cola, violet and smoky minerals. Fresh dark berry flavors display impressive depth and are brightened by notes of fresh flowers and mace. Finishes with excellent clarity and assertive lingering flavors of blue fruits and cherry compote.
A wine of amazing quality and purity, the 2005 J.C. Vizcarra spent nine months is French and American oak, and is made entirely with Tempranillo. Full-bodied with creamy black cherry, cassis and a streak of red berry fruit surrounded by notes of smoky oak and minerals. Drink this with extreme pleasure over the next ten or more years.
Surprisingly, this 100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero reminds me of a well-made California Cabernet. Beautiful aromas of blackberries and dark cherries lead to ripe, rich fruits on the palate. Full-bodied yet balanced, with super concentration and loads of briary fruit flavors. Refined and tasty. I have never been disappointed with Vizcarraandrsquo;s line of reds. The 2005 J.C. showcases this wineryandrsquo;s topnotch winemaking and quality vineyards.
Bright violet. Youthful, high-pitched aromas of red and dark berries, with a touch of anise. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and licorice flavors are lifted by tangy minerality, picking up a floral quality with air. Nervy and pure on the long, spicy, red-fruity aftertaste.
Smoke and espresso notes frame cherry and licorice flavors in this austere yet polished red. There's good density, and the finish is lively. Best from 2011 through 2016.
