Sarmentero Vendemmia Seleccionada Ribera del Duero 2014

Ribera del Duero, Castilla-Leon, SpainThe winery is based in the backyard of a wee house in the tiny town of Quintanilla de Arriba, Valladolid. Amparo Repiso, 4th generation winemaker, decided to start her own winery in 2004 with just one barrel of wine. A new winery came in 2013 to process the fruits from her two tempranillo vineyards. One year in French oak provides the structure, with a wink of vanilla lines the stony base. Compact and dense blackberry, liquorice, savoury thorns, black plum, cracked black pepper fill the generous palate, and wood gripped tannins house it. Lengthy and spicy, this is drinking beautifully now but will hold for five+ years in the cellar.Tasted: 07 February 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 41.65 private wine shops Producer: M.
