I first wrote laudatory comments about Pesquera over a decade ago, so I am thrilled to see proprietor Alejandro Fernandez continue to build on his noteworthy track record. His new releases are splendid. It is no secret that 1994 is one of the greatest vintages in the last 30 years for northern Spain. Pesquera's 1994 Tinto Crianza is undoubtedly representative of the fabulous ripeness and intensity the grapes achieved. From its opaque purple color, to its extraordinary aromatics, which consist of melted chocolate, roasted meats, jammy black fruits, and spice, this is an extraordinary, well-endowed, full-bodied wine of remarkable richness and intensity. There are impressive levels of glycerin and extract, but no hard edges or sense of heaviness in this blockbuster effort. (RP)
Still in its infancy, but promises to develop into a real powerhouse. It's thick and tannic, muscular and closed, even a bit clumsy now, as the powerful tannins and coffee and chocolate oak notes mask the roasted, jammy fruit flavors of cassis and plum.--Pesquera vertical. (TM)
