Spain's Ribera del Duero in north central Spain takes the native Tempranillo to soaring heights. This noble grape, which makes soft and subtle wines in Rioja, is transformed into bold, luscious, fruit-driven, concentrated reds by Ribera's pioneering winemakers. The region is the ideal wine destination for those who love modern-style, new-world reds but are eager to explore European regions. Today's Six-Pack Special, the 2016 Finca Villacreces Pruno Tinto Ribera del Duero, was sourced from grapes (Tempranillo plus a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon) grown near the famed Vega Sicilia property and is a TOTAL STEAL! For under $14.66 per bottle, you will swear you are drinking a $40 wine. Don't believe it? Check out the press!
91 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Always a good value in Ribera and cropped from a fresher year, the 2016 Pruno has notes of licorice, dark berries and even some fresher red fruit. It has abundant, fine-grained tannins that require powerful food. 524,330 bottles and 2016 magnums produced. It was bottled in November 2017." (8/31/18)
91 points, Wine Spectator
"Smoky and loamy earth notes frame a core of black cherry and plum in this firm, dense red. Balsamic acidity balances muscular tannins, which yield to a floral, minerally finish. Drink now through 2028. 40,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported." (9/30/18)
