Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero Reserva 2014

97 Points! A magical wine, the 2014 Reserva from winemaker Almudena Calvo is largely Tempranillo blend with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot, all aged in French oak for a year. Deep and powerful, with beautiful concentration, it’s nevertheless incredibly elegant and seamless on the palate, and shows terrific complexity in its blackcurrants, graphite, white flowers, and vanilla bean aromas and flavors. A wine of great intensity as well as purity, it builds with time in the glass and has a fabulous finish that won’t quit. It’s not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors, but it’s a thrilling wine. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com
94 Points! With 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot blended with Tinto Fino, this is not your usual Ribera del Duero monster. Aromas of breakfast sausage, fennel and bacon fat meld into lightly herbal berry scents. A fresh, forward palate is softened by creamy oak, while this tastes slightly lactic, with wood spice, hickory, bacon and blackberry flavors. On the finish, this mellows out and isn't too fierce. Drink through 2028. - Wine Enthusiast
