Tasting Notes

Located in the town of Roa, which is part of the Burgos district, Lambuena is a producer of D.O. Ribera del Duero wines and is one of our newest Spanish direct imports. Ideally situated in the central growing region of the Ribera del Duero, in an area known for the very high quality of its chalky clay soils and its extreme continental climate, Lambuena makes big, generously fruited, yet structured and ultimately classic Ribera del Duero wines, very difficult to find these days in this D.O. A careful hand harvest and native yeast fermentation in tank followed by a brief four month stint in French and American oak barrels all add up to a very good "roble," or briefly oaked, style of Ribera del Duero wine. Pair with steak or lamb chops! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish buyer)

    Hot damn, what a wine for ten bucks! Juicy and dusty with a fruit friendly profile, but a clear rusticity from the thicker-skinned Ribera del Duero tempranillo grapes that provide a heavier skin-to-juice ratio. There are few red wines in the store at ten dollars in this quality bracket. This is for people who wish zinfandel was lower in alcohol, or who want Beaujolais without the crunchy red fruits. This is a wine that delivers typicity and character for a true bargain.
