    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 vintage of Barco de Piedra is one of the best vintages ever made in the Ribera del Duero region. A glass-staining opaque purple, it offers up an enticing bouquet cedar, spice box, violets, cassis, and black cherry. This is followed by a rich, flavorful, firm wine that will evolve. This lengthy bargain will drink well through 2015. It is what over-delivering is all about.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The purple-colored 2009 Barco de Piedra is a cuvee of 100% Tempranillo aged for 5 months in French and American oak. Earthy minerals, tapenade, licorice, and blackberry aromas lead to a meaty, savory, full-flavored red that is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 6 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Berry and rubbery aromas suggest young but spunky fruit. And the palate is indeed lively, albeity big and grabby. The flavor profile offers a mix of plum, berry and herbs, while the finish has a good feel to it and sauvage notes. Solid and likable.
