WINE & SPIRITS MAGAZINE - THE YEAR'S BEST (JUNE 2010)
THE YEAR'S BEST WINES: RIBERA DEL DUERO
226 Wines tasted with the TOP 46 featured in the June 2010 Issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine. The wines listed were considered EXCEPTIONAL with a rating of 90 points or higher.
BODEGAS TABULA - GRAN TABULA 2003 - 93 POINTS
"Given the warmth of the vintage, this is surprisingly fresh & unusually elegant for Ribera. From Vines more than 60 years old, it offers juicy sour cherry flavors surrounded by tense tannins. A red to age for at least five years."
BODEGAS ASENJO Y MANSO - SILVANUS CRIANZA 2006 - 91 POINTS
"A selection from vineyards around La Horra, all about 50 years old, this is austere at first, its red fruit held tight by tannins. The generosity of that fruit and spice develops with air; it should become more accessible with five years' aging."
BODEGAS TABULA - TABULA 2004 - 90 POINTS
"A robust Ribera red, this has flavors of roasted almonds, sweet spice & a light touch of dried fig. The texture is dense, the alcohol encouraging a lush softness."
