Vizcarra Ribera del Duero JC 2008

Vizcarra Ribera del Duero JC 750ML 2008     
Sku: 20341

Bodegas Vizcarra was founded in 1991 by winemaker Juan Carlos Vizcarra. His father, Jose Manuel Vizcarra Aguado was among the pioneers in vineyard plantings in Ribera del Duero. Sixty-four acres of organically farmed vineyards are located in the towns of Mambrilla Castrejon and Roa de Duero, in Ribera del Duero. The continental climate provides a long, slow ripening period resulting in wines that are darker, concentrated and aromatic. Soil composition is clay and limestone topsoil and gravel subsoil. In 2007, the winery opened a new gravityfed winemaking facility. All the wines are racked without pumping and bottled by gravity. This gentle treatment prevents harsh tannins and instead produces soft, complex and elegant wines.

Tasting notes
Beautiful red fruit aromas and flavors on the palate along with vibrant acidity to deftly balance the firm structure and formidable volume.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Jun 2010)
The 2008 J.C. Vizcarra, from a moderately challenging vintage, was the recipient of all the juice that would have gone into the estate?s upper-tier wines. It was aged for 15 months in 50% new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, lavender, and blackberry. Ripe, succulent, and structured, it has 2-3 years of aging potential and will provide prime drinking from 2012 to 2020. It is a great value in serious red wine.

Technical notes
Fermented in stainless steel and aged 15 months in French and American oak barrels, 50% new and 50% neutral.
