Saturated purple-ruby. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, gunflint, chocolate, minerals, flowers and sexy nutty oak. Wonderfully lush, creamy and sweet, with extraordinary concentration of dark fruit, mineral and floral flavors. A wine with no corners, and hard to scrape off your palate. Broad on entry, then expands to a new dimension on the back half. Finishes with outstanding persistence and noble tannins that coat the incisors. The wine's oak component strikes this taster as particularly suave and harmonious. (ST)
Although I would not regard the 2003 Pingus as a perfect wine, it remains a fantastic Ribera del Duero. It has a scintillating bouquet of dark cherries, graphite, black truffle, Indian ink and liquorice that is incredibly precise. The palate is rounded and opulent on the entry: an unashamedly luscious wine with a silky-smooth texture. It is generous and perhaps a little more forward than I was expecting, but it is a Pingus that is impossible to dislike. Drink now-2025+. (NM)
Heavy oak flavors of smoke, espresso and toast dominate this big red, but there is a core of ripe plum fruit, accented with mineral and tobacco notes. It's concentrated and heady, if a bit austere now. (TM)
