Hacienda Monasterio, Ribera Del Duero, 2007

A mediocre vintage in the Ribera, and it shows, because while the nose offers a certain Old World funk, I would characterize the palate as unpleasantly stingy. (Dec. 14, 2013)

About 35 Euros in Madrid.

Luckily, back on track:

Weingut Josef Leitz, Rheingau, Rüdesheimer Berg Schloßberg, Riesling Spätlese, 2007

A fine, regal, nose, focused and clear, chiming in with green apples, peaches, slate, flowers, mint and …

…unique. Of course, you distinguish the taste of a Rioja and a Ribera del Duero wine .

Be more original : forget the traditional wines. Be always ready to surprise your guests. To do this, think about the lesser known organic wines, a South African wine or from other countries, for example...

According to what you know about the person to whom you want to offer the wine : There is always a different wine for each person. If our friend likes powerful flavors, we …

…tannins and enough food-friendly acidity to make it enjoyable. Overall, this is a Ribera Del Duero wine made in a more modern style that all of my guests found pleasant and moderately complex. This is good juice for the money that's drinking nicely now that also has the potential to develop further with short-term cellaring. Click here to find this wine.

…spent a few hours at the Boston Wine School at an energetic Ribera Del Duero seminar and tasting. Jonathan Alsop runs the school and every time I am with Jonathan, he says something simple about wine that lands with profound resonance. This time Jonathan opened the seminar for thirty wine writers and members of the New England trade saying, "we study Bordeaux so we can discover and appreciate regions like Ribera Del Duero." Benchmarking field players …

…between tempranillo from Rioja and from Ribera Del Duero.

So how do they compare?

Just going from what I am tasting in the glass, the Ribera Del Duero is darker, more dramatic, and intense, with focused, concentrated notes of black licorice and very concentrated ripe black fruit. Think coffee grounds and best quality black licorice with a touch of exotic vanilla and you may sense the flavor. In an MW style blind tasting, I can almost imagine it being paired with a cru classe St. Emilion…

…possibly from several years of aging in French and American oak.

In the main tasting room of the Mandarin Oriental hotel, several producers offered excellent examples of Ribera Del Duero wine, which is mostly made from Tempranillo. The law says it must contain 85%, yet most producers used 100% and aged the wine in mostly French oak.

Really nice showing of these absolutely delicious wines!

…winery is assigned a surveyor by the Consejo Regulador of D.O. Ribera del Duero" to regulate the origin of the grapes, the varieties and percentages allowed, winemaking procedures, and so on. I had to smile at the thought of the California Department of Food and Agriculture sending " Reguladors" to each winery to police their practices. I asked Yoon if he thought that such bureaucratic intrusion was good for the wines, or if it inhibited innovation. He replied, in …
