Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

The 2008 Flor de Pingus had been in bottle for 2 weeks when I tasted it. It offers up an enticing nose of smoke, Asian spices, incense, espresso, black cherry, and blackberry. On the palate it displays outstanding volume, intensity, and balance. Rich, dense, and succulent, it has enough structure to evolve for 4-5 years and will offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2028.

($95) Vibrant purple. Energetic, nuanced aromas of raspberry, cherry, Asian spices, cocoa powder and rose, plus a hint of blood orange. Compellingly silky and sweet on entry, then vibrant and delineated in the mid-palate, with a floral quality accenting the flavors of crushed red berries and blood orange. The wine's pungent minerality gives a weightless impression to the long, spicy finish.

Wine Varietal: Tempranillo


Tempranillo is Spain's noble grape. Grown mostly in northern Spain, some of the best Tempranillo wine comes from the regions of Rioja and the Ribera del Duero. This grape enjoys cooler climates and is sensitive to pests and adverse weather conditions. While Tempranillo can be bottled alone, it is often blended with other Spanish grapes such as Grenache, Carignan, and more recently, Cabernet Sauvignon. Tempranillo is also grown in the Duero region of Portugal where the grapes are commonly blended to make Port. Tempranillo wines may be consumed young, but are regarded as being at their best when aged. There are a multitude of synonyms for Tempranillo depending on where it is grown. Typical descriptors for Tempranillo include berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather, meat and herbs.
