2018 Milsetentayseis Ribera del Duero Tinto - 95 PTS - Guia Penin

guia penin logo"The wine is deep cherry in color exhibiting complex, expressive aromas. Its minerality comes from the soil, the black fruit from the Tempranillo and the spice from a sometime in oak. The combination leads to a full body that finishes with great length.

2018 Milsetentayseis Ribera del Duero Tinto - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Inky violet. Potent aromas of cassis, cherry preserves, incense and potpourri, plus oak spice and mineral topnotes. Alluringly sweet and concentrated, with a spine of smoky minerality supporting intense flavors of dark berry liqueur, bitter chocolate, cola and candied lavender. Youthful, slow-building tannins add shape and grip to an impressively long, juicy finish that echoes the dark berry and floral notes. - Josh Raynolds."

2019 Milsetentayseis Ribera del Duero Tinto - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"Like the rosé, I also found better balance and more integrated oak in the second vintage of the red, the 2019 Tinto, where they used larger barrels, 300- 400- and 600-liter, and the oak is neatly folded into the wine. Despite being a warmer year, the wine has less alcohol than the 2018. The wine remains creamy and with a luxurious palate of ripe fruit and spicy oak flavors but with more balance. The tannins are fine, and the mouthfeel is dry and serious, a return to the Ribera from the early 1990s. 27,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021."
