Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero is a passion project for the winery:

Pago de Carrovejas is made in the pure respect for the origin, the soul of a journey and the emotion of a road ahead. Although the wine will continue to develop in the bottle and show other nuances with time, we want to share the main impressions we note at this time. A sensation of volume and elegance in its tannins, in addition to floral nuances that accompany the fruit. In a way, it increases our desire to get closer to the terroir and express its characteristics. Our desire to bottle every landscape.

Expressive & open; powerful and delicate at the same time. Firm yet subtle tannins, with recognizable character and good balance.

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Lactic oak combined with very ripe fruit results in aromas of buttermilk, jammy berry, cough drop and campfire. In the mouth, this feels severely tannic and packed to the brim with fruit. Oak-based flavors blanket berry tastes, while this remains woody as a sawmill on the finish. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2015 Ribera del Duero is a blend of mostly Tempranillo yet includes 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot, all brought up in French oak. It has a rockingly good bouquet of blueberries, violets, and spice. This carries to a full-bodied, sexy wine that has no hard edges, a seamless texture, outstanding purity of fruit, and a big finish. It’s a serious wine that I suspect is capable of keeping for 10-15 years."

wa92"The Crianza and Reserva have been merged into a single 2015 Pago de Carraovejas, a case study of success in Spain showcasing the ripe and powerful style of Ribera del Duero with generous oak and concentration. It's a heady Tempranillo (complemented by some 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot) with 15% alcohol and moderate acidity. A whopping 700,000 bottles and 14,000 magnums produced. The quality is impressive for the volume. A crowd-pleaser (in its style). - Luis Gutierrez"
