($50) Inky ruby. Exotic aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, roasted coffee, dark chocolate and cured tobacco. Lush, sweet and smoky, with a supple texture to the deep dark berry liqueur flavors. No edges here, just luscious dark fruits and a wild smoky quality that carries into the finish. Impressively powerful and rich on the back end, with a lingering blackberry quality that won't quit.

In the wonderful 2004 vintage, owner/winemaker Peter Sisseck has outdone himself. If I were just starting to build a wine collection and had limited income, I can think of no better foundation than a dozen bottles of 2004 Flor de Pingus. In the context of the world's great wines, it is a stupendous value, a steal. It is 100% Tempranillo from very low yields and is aged 14 months in 100% new French barriques. Opaque purple in color, it emits already complex aromas of smoke, toast, coffee, blueberry, blackberry, and licorice. Lush on the palate, super ripe and sweet, as well as multi-dimensional, this great effort can be drunk now, but I'd opt for cellaring it for 6-8 years to allow further evolution.

Unreal...amazing. Maybe one of my best Spainish wines outside of Vega Sicila.

This wine looks, smells and tates like a Pingus! its such good and powerful vintage that is difficult to imagine how much good could be the Pingus over this 'Flor' or 2nd label. Its starting to mature slowly is delicoious right now but still 2yrs from entering to peak. Peak that shall last 4-6 yrs easily. It has the ripe fruit, toasty aok bouquet and above all that the TERROIR that makes a Ribera something really special and distictive. Bravo Pingus!
