Montevannos Reserva 2005 – 92 Points

92 Points What’s great about this wine is how it blends modernity, meaning ripeness, with traditional aromas and flavors of tobacco, earth and oak. The nose is a symphony of marzipan, tobacco and dried fruit scents, while the palate is fresh, alert and houses flavors of baked cherry, plum, vanilla and mossy earth. Pure and smooth on the finish; drink now through 2018. — Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast (5/1/2013).

Dehesa de los Canonigos Reserva

DO Ribera del Duero, Spain (85% Tinto Fino, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Albillo) 750 mL TASTING NOTES Morello cherry red with a good depth. Elegant nose, intense primary aromas of soft fruits well offset by spicy notes of weathered wood characteristic of a rigorous aging in American oak which nonetheless do not overshadow the fruit character. Powerful mouth, fleshy, very luscious, rich and silky, with lovely tannin structure and acidity. Intense in retro-olfaction, with fruity aromas, balsamic, liquorice, coffee etc. The pleasant flavours of the aftertaste are particularly noted on the finish as sensations are still intense and invite immediate drinking. Barrelled-fermentation period 24 months in American oak barrel of typically one-two years old and medium-heavy toasting.   RD22.
