“What distinguishes the best Ribera del Duero wines is a mixture of intense concentration and lifted, complex aromatics, and ‘17 by Pinea’ captures that elusive combination beautifully. Having tasted so many blocky, super-rich, oak-slathered reds from this appellation, this wine was a refreshing change of pace.”
Ian Cauble, Somm Select
“…a concentrated and elegant Ribera del Duero… long, polished finish. Drink or hold”.
James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
“I’m impressed by the texture of this wine [17 by PINEA] “
Ferrán Centelles, JancisRobinson.com
“It’s a heavyweight… chunky blackberry and fig flavors swathed with chocolate notes from aging in 30 months in French oak. It remains oaky and thick into the finish. Drink through 2032.”
Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
“Expressive ripe raspberry fruit, cinnamon and vanilla nose. Palate is firmly structured and multi-layered, with lovely purity, ripe and round tannins and a really good persistence of flavour. Well made and stylish.”
“Pinea is a world class expression of Tempranillo at its very best!”
Christian Varas, Houston Iron Somm Award Winner
“…elegant profile with a plush core of fruit…, well-integrated tannins and a long, ripe and well-balanced finish… a very impressive first release… clearly aiming for the very top division in Ribera del Duero”.
John Guilman, A view from the Cellar’s
“… if Pinot Noir is silk then Tempranillo is velvet and the texture of this wine reflects this perfectly. The tannins are substantial but very polished and elegant. It’s obvious that there is some classy winemaking involved here but the minerality of the site still persists on the finish”.
Advance Master Sommelie, Scott Barber
“… this is by far the best Tempranillo I’ve ever experienced”.
Marc SauterSomm, Select
“A great new Ribera shows incredible dedication to quality, resulting in a bold wine with power but staying true to the region.”
David Forer, Master of Wine
