2013 Ribera del Duero "Valdrinal 6" (Sualdea, Bodegas y Vinedos de Hoz)
Bodegas y Vinedos de Hoz Sualdea, "Valdrinal 6", Ribera del Duero, Spain 2013100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) BLACK RASPBERRY & BING CHERRY, FIRM, GENTLE WOODSY SPICE With less than two decades under its belt, David Cuéllar's Valdrinal estate can be described as a very young winery, and yet its wines seem the culmination of a wisdom and a passion which are timeless and respectful of tradition. Comprised of a patchwork of non-contiguous vineyards scattered about the heart of Ribera del Duero, the vines responsible for this firm, impeccably balanced Tempranillo (locally called Tinta Fina) average thirty years of age. Aged for six months in French and American oak and yet unmistakably starring dark, berryish fruit and elegantly earthy notes, this is a red that's both deliciously assertive and admirably understated. Serving Suggestion: Beef empanadas w/ green peas, raisins, & tender, savory carrots. Grilled onion & eggplant w/ cumin/cinnamon mole & cilantro in toasted corn tortillas.
