…too extracted! - earthy, black fruit, encumbered with oak. A Bourgogne for lovers of Ribera. Prieur (like Jadot, both of which are carried by Wine Route) used to be a good place to start exploring Burgundy, but the style is really a blend of lackluster and vulgar wine making and today we in Israel simply have too many better options.

About 200 NIS, I'd guess.

…good amount of hair and of considerable thickness, especially red wines from Ribera de Duero and some Australian wines . In contrast, only a slight down for German white wines, and nothing for French white wines of Bordeaux . The cause: certain chemical components of the soil in which the vine grows. By blending these elements with vine, a chemical reaction starts and promotes significant irrigation in the region.

The problem: To be able to grow hair, bottles …

…in Spain, at least more modern than the historical Rioja, in the Ribera del Duero , where many of the wines are monovarietal Tempranillo, you can also find coupages with Cabernet Sauvignon to offer some of the great wines of this area.

Do you have a favorite coupage? Do you know any "famous" coupage in other areas? Today we recommend 2 wines with seducing coupages:

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:

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

2012 Pago de Los Capellanes, Joven, Ribera del Duero

Made with a 100 percent Tempranillo from a blend of 40 parcels from high altitude to preserve freshness (650-800m), this is a joyful little wine. A core of bright red cherry fruit is lifted by notes of cloves and Asian spice thanks to five months in new French oak. Delicious by itself, I love the food-friendly element of this wine - it will really come to its own with lamb.

…slightly chalky 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.

Italy, I 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 …

Garnet hue with enticing aromas of bright berries, undertones of light cigar box with a purity that one expects of a much more expensive wine.

Palate--Perfectly ripe tannins with bold, fruity berries with spicy nuances that defy the price point of this remarkable Tempranillo ( aka Tinto fino)!

This lovely super value wine is from the Ribera Del Deuro and cost me--sit down--$8! It's name PROTOS means "First"! In this case, its no exaggeration!
