2010 Finca Villacreces Ribera del Duero Pruno

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

Unpleasant meaty nose at first but after an hour or so the fruit started to come through with medium toast and soft tanins, pleasant drinking for a while but seemed to fall away towards the end of the bottle.

Breathed for 2 hour. Better to go with food to balance the acidity. Fresh red fruit in the nose and mouth. Soft and medium tannin. Medium finish.

Dull medium garnet red. Spicy raspberries and significant alcohol on the nose. Just-ripe raspberries, bitterness, and distant umami and lots of alcohol on the finish. Tasty but drinks very hot.

Pnp. Drinking well but even better after an hour. Black fruits on the palate. Silky tannins. This is easy drinking and ready. Disagree with recent negative comments.

Very tart at first, even after hours of decanting. Good at day two though. Would give it 2-3 years more...

This is apparently from a vineyard next to Vega Sicilia. Dark ruby. Very chocolaty note with sweet spices. On the palate very fruity but lacking aromatic complexity and length for a higher score. I guess just being the neighbor is not enough. At ca 25$ the bottle, well done though.

Very shy nose followed by energetic chokecherry, tobacco, and graphite. Well orchestrated acid and tannins. 10% cabernet sauvignon darkens the color and taste, moderates but doesn't obliterate the tangy tempranillo infrastructure. Classic Ribera del Duero.

Very disappointed. Not sure if it's in a dumb phase but very laid back and no vitality. No oxidized but just lacking.

Broke my heart as I was expecting something akin to a religious experience based on the many other 2001 Riojas and Riberas I have consumed over the last decade. My favorite vintage in Spain. The 2001's have been nothing short of transcendent and have aged so beautifully. I could tell something was a little off right out of the bottle as the color was more bricky orange-tinged with a whiff of sherried oxidation. The first taste brought home the disappointment with none of the seamless integration of elements I had come to expect. I could taste the age, the breakdown of alcohol and found it flat and uninspired as far as fruit or acid. I left a third of the bottle until the next day, and to its credit, it had improved and I wished I had not been in a hurry and had let it breath for hours in a decanter. It's always a risk with an older wine, but I should have done it. Live and learn, I guess. Still got some '04s from them which is my second favorite vintage in Spain.

Lots of leather, strong wood, red fruit, plum, good acidity, tannins still strong, wine still has time so no hurry. Overall, very good wine if you can handle the strong leather and wood.

Opened last night. Intense black purple saturated with a dark purple rim. Smoky espresso fig paste and blackberry coulis on the nose. Medium weight with grippy black tea tannins. Black fruits on the palate with a stony element and smoky black tea and dark chocolate. Lingering port like finish. Very classy and needs more time.

Loved it, but higher rating would have been given with the exception of the finish. You hear about a wine's entry, middle and finish, and this wine was a roller coaster in that regard. The entry Southern Rhone, the middle was almost like California Cabernet and the finish was acidic and screaming for food. Would love to have more.

Not good. This has a funky, sour, unlikeable flavor profile. It's so distracting that it keeps you from enjoying the wine. I have another bottle so will revisit, but certainly will not risk serving this to guests.

Decentwine but way too tight for the price point. I don't want to buy a $15-$17 wine and wait 3-4 years before it's really ready to drink. Right now, it's rough and not-ready, but has promise. Don't touch before 2016
