A linear and refined red with dense fruit, yet bright and racy. Full-bodied, tannic and firm. Shows wonderful length and complexity. 100% tempranillo and aged in 40% new French barrels. Needs about four to five years to soften but already beautiful.
The 2013 Flor de Pingus is a mosaic of different vineyards in the village of La Horra in Burgos, totaling some 35 hectares. As all these are estate vineyards, they were much better controlled than those used for PSI, and the wine shows it in a challenging vintage like this one. It has a slightly different profile from your average Ribera, with better freshness. The wine had only been in bottle for around one month, and the wine is open and expressive. There are some roasted aromas, black cherries, blackberries and plenty of spices with hints of smoke. It's also a lighter version of Flor, and whether this will be as long-lived as other vintages, it's still a question mark, as the extra acidity might give it a longer life than expected. In any case, give it some time in bottle to finish integrating the oak and drink over the next four-five years. 70,000 bottles produced. (LG)
Brilliant violet color. A heady bouquet displays scents of fresh raspberry, incense and rose pastille, with a spicy nuance adding lift. Stains the palate with red fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors, with tangy acidity providing lift and focus. Youthfully firm tannins build through the clinging finish, which repeats the red fruit and floral qualities. (JR)
Firm tannins corset a plush texture in this generous red. Black cherry, plum, cedar, spice and mineral flavors mingle, kept lively by fresh acidity. Plenty of stuffing here, but not aggressive. (Web Only-2016) (TM)
