Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Vizcarra Roble, 100% Tempranillo from organic vineyards, was aged seven months in both French and American oak. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a sumptuous nose of blackberries, new saddle leather, licorice, camphor and crushed rocks. With a superb texture and full-bodied mouthfeel, and built like a skyscraper, this multidimensional Ribera del Duero is already drinking fabulously well. It should continue to do so for up to a decade.
James SucklingFull berry fermentation aromas. Super fruity. Has purity of fruit, like the grapes are in the glass. Not much tannin but lots of good fruit and fresh acidity. A delicious, juicy wine.
