    Varietal: Tempranillo

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 124846

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 100% Tempranillo is opaque purple in color and offers up a bouquet of candied fruit, espresso, creamy spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. It is structured on the palate with layers of concentrated fruit and sweet tannins.

    Creta Roble is an Eric Solomon joint venture with Isaac Fernandez. Tank fermented 100% Tempranillo that has been aged in older American and French oak. Picked from a 70 year old vineyard located 2,700 ft. in elevation. "Creta" means "Chalk" which is an important mineral component found in the top vineyards of the Ribera del Duero.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A custom cuvee made exclusively for importer Eric Solomon, the 2011 Creta Roble is 100% Tempranillo aged 4-5 months in neutral French and American oak. It comes from 60+-year-old vines. An outstanding effort, it is a big Ribera del Duero fruit bomb with lots of licorice, jammy black currant, lead pencil shavings, espresso and toasty oak notes. Medium to full-bodied with loads of fruit, glycerin and ripeness, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

    This is a big fruit driven wine but also fairly complex. Medium to full bodied packed with blackberry and cherry flavors along with licorice and coffee.Got better and smoother over time.Very good wine and very good value.
