    Critical Acclaim:

    Inky ruby. Potent, mineral- and smoke-accented dark berry and violet scents show excellent clarity and lift. Silky and seamless in texture, offering sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors and notes of spicecake and floral pastilles. Closes with strong thrust, appealing sweetness and sneaky, slow-mounting tannins. Very suave, even now, but this wine will be much better in another five to seven years.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    The 2011 Flor de Pingus is a ripe and powerful Flor that reached 15.5% alcohol in a very warm vintage. The wine is always a combination of 16 separate plots of Tempranillo from the village of La Horra, some young, and some old that are fermented individually in 4,000-liter stainless steel vats. In this ripe and powerful vintage that Sisseck compares with 2009, he decided to age the wine for 18 months in used French oak barrels. This shows riper than other 2011s from Sisseck (is it because it-s only Tempranillo?), with aromas of ripe plums, dark cherries, cinnamon and cloves with a slight lactic touch. The palate is full-bodied, lush and round, with plenty of glycerin, but fresh flavors and good balancing acidity.
