IWC 90 WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "A custom cuvee made exclusively for importer Eric Solomon, the 2011 Creta Roble is 100% Tempranillo aged 4-5 months in neutral French and American oak. It comes from 60+-year-old vines. An outstanding effort, it is a big Ribera del Duero fruit bomb with lots of licorice, jammy black currant, lead pencil shavings, espresso and toasty oak notes. Medium to full-bodied with loads of fruit, glycerin and ripeness, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Opaque ruby. Ripe blackcurrant and boysenberry on the nose, with bright spice and floral accents. Fleshy and sweet, with supple dark berry preserve and violet pastille flavors, velvety texture and bright mineral lift. Finishes with spicy length, soft tannins and lingering florality. I find this fruit-driven wine approachable right now." 100% Tempranillo. 14.5% ABV.
