Product Description

Good Morning!

Bacchus spans the Atlantic this week for a mellow, fruity and amicable red from the Ribera Del Duero in Spain, home of very fine estate grown Tempranillo.

The 2016 Bodegas Valparaiso Finca El Encinal Roble from Ribera was presented to us recently among a litter of various Spanish offerings. While this little puppy was neither the most expensive nor oldest, it represented a truly spring like freshness and elegance we found delightful. This Encinal doesn’t quite reach the Crianza designation, as it has not been aged at least a year in oak. But in this wine, it is a very good thing. Compared to some of the other, aged wines, the Roble actually exhibited much more fruit and bouquet with just hints of toastiness. But more importantly, it drank fleshy and silky — reminding us of ripe, mature fruit.

Tempranillo is the dominant grape in Ribero Del Duero — an appellation known for world class wines that can rival Rioja. Bacchus felt this is the right wine at the right time as we progress into an early spring with Easter around the corner. This wine will fall inline with much of the Easter cuisine — lamb — roasted veggies — even Chocolate Easter Bunnies.

Our little group gave this wine a good going over and compared it to others of the day. No question, at this price, it was a winner.

The Tempranillo, all sourced from Valparaiso estate vineyards, comes across juicy and a bit spicy. After four years, the oak has integrated and tannins have retreated into the back ground without leaving any harsh green notes. The wine is drinking pretty good right now and would last through the next couple of years.

Our friends at Wine and Spirits Magazine awarded it 92 points and listed it as a Top 100 Best Buy.

We suggest you tag into this offering at our special case price — it will serve you well this season.
