Spanish Wine Imported by The Country Vintner


Things are still a bit chaotic due to the flood but we manage to continue pulling corks.   The 2010 Bodegas Emilio Moro, Emilio Moro, Ribera del Duero is young, showing primary flavors and obvious barrel notes.  The flavors were clean, fresh, and mineral accented so I would cellar this for a year or two.  The is 2009 Finca Sandoval, Salia de Finca Sandoval, Manchuela is already throwing a lot sediment.  It is a good follow-on to the 2008 vintage which I reviewed in my post Two Wines From Finca os Cobatos and Finca Sandoval.  It has attractive stone notes and dried herbs but like the previous vintage it should be cellared for the short-term.  I should note it was easy to drink, perhaps due to the relatively low alcohol.  These wines were purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Bodegas Emilio Moro, Emilio Moro, Ribera del Duero – $25
Imported by The Country Vintner.  This wine is 100% Tinto Fino sourced from 15-25 year old vines then aged for 12 months in French and American oak.  Alcohol 14.5%.  The nose bore cocoa notes along with sweet, very ripe fruit.  In the mouth were smooth flavors of cocoa and some black fruit with black minerals.  There were very fine, dry tannins, and a dry, mineral finish that remained fresh.  There were purple and black flavors and salivating acidity in the aftertaste.  This was a clean, primary wine that has some power.  It was a touch spicy with a vanilla note in the finish.  *** Now-2022.

2009 Finca Sandoval, Salia de Finca Sandoval, Manchuela – $17
Imported by The Country Vintner.  This wine is a blend of 49% Syrah, 30% Garnacha Tintorera, and 21% Garnacha Tinta which was aged for 11 months in French and American oak.  Alcohol 13.5%.  There were very focused flavors of black and red fruit, dusty stone notes, and a little tartness.  It took on dried herbs towards the finish.  This wine is compact but responds well to air.  The flavors became blacker.  **(*) 2015-2019.
