Barco de Piedra Ribera del Duero 2009

Barco de Piedra Ribera del Duero 750ml 2009     
Sku: 18938

Barco de Piedra is made from organic, estate fruit grown on the hillsides of the Quinon Estate. El Quinon is located in the heart of the western district of Ribera del Duero, about a mile north of the Duero River and 4 miles east of Vega Sicilia. Of the two main growing areas in Ribera, the west side is not as exposed to frost and enjoys more moderate temperatures. Cool nights, minimal rain and older vines produce small berries with a high skin-to-juice ratio and strong tannins, thereby diminishing the need for oak.

Tasting notes
Displays the characteristic elegant structure of wines from the Ribera del Duero. Aromas of raspberry, violet, rose petal and blueberry are well integrated with soft tannins, licorice and dried cherry flavors on the finish.

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Jun 2011)
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.

Technical notes
After triage, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold macerated for 2-3 days. Fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures, the wine was macerated for an additional 8 days and then aged for five months in three year old 300 liter French (85%) and American (15%) oak barrels.
