REVIEW: Tinto Pesquera 2006

August 7th, 2010 by Jeff

Price: ~$37

Region:

Ribera Del Duero, Spain

Nose:

Deep, complex and intense.  Roasted beets, cherries, spice and vanilla.  This has spent at least 18 months in American oak.

Palate:

Let the fun begin.  When we put this in our mouths we all looked at one another and our eyes lit up like deer on the highway.  Round and full it expands with licorice, plum and cherry.  Tannins are present but round and savory.  The finish is juicy and memorable.

Synopsis:

If you’re not drinking Vega Sicilia from Ribera Del Duero (and honestly who can at that price?) then you should be drinking Pesquera.  Alejandro Fernandez was the first in the region to use 100% tempranillo and before him there was only Vega and cheap Garnacha rosé to call Ribera Del Duero home.

The Som Rating: 9/10 Scarlett Johansson Heads
