2009 Finca Villacreces Ribera del Duero

Holiday Spanish Wines 2015; 6/29/2015-7/12/2015: Charmingly accessible but also complex. Lots of juicy, fresh fruits of the forest, pine and a porcini savouriness. A bit of tomelo too. Good weight in the mouth but not heavy. Some muddy tannins leave their mark on the otherwise sweet and appealing finish. 14%

Decent wine. Nice notes of cherries, fig, tobacco. Wanted to like it more, but did not. I drank it the next day, but the wine did not improve. Lacked depth and body. I realize I may be asking for too much at this price point, but some of the reviews lead me to believe that this wine was special. I do not find it so. OK for one time tasting, but may pass on this one the next time.

From poorly stored 375, a little past peak. Could indicate this is a good time to start through the last of the 750s.

Carmine/purple at the rim - floral plum/cherry notes on the nose. Medium to full bodied, held slightly in restraint - a trifle dilute, well mannered but evident tannins - fresh, the structure is better than the fruit depth. However, far from ready - try again in two years.

Not a stunner, I think maybe on the way down now and past prime. Didn't do much for me and I really like this producer. I was hoping that holding this a decade would yield some dividends, but disappointed. Still drinkable but just meh. I would drink up --and maybe decant? (I didn't)

Color cereza picota, ribete violáceo-granatoso, capa tirando a alta y fina lágrima bien tintada. Nariz de notable intensidad con aromas de fruta del bosque bien madura (moras, grosellas y frambuesas), los tostados de la barrica se muestran bien integrados pero bien presentes, notas lácteas, suaves especias que resultan algo dulzonas (canela) con toques de clavo y nuez moscada, intensos bálsámicos con eucalipto fresco, notas avainilladas, suave sensación de licor de grosellas y piel de naranja seca, al cabo de un rato surgen extrañas sensaciones de pasta fresca al ragú que desaparecen y aparece algo de cedro, monte bajo y cierta frescura de terruño húmedo. Notable entrada con una buena astringencia que no llega a molestar, buen recorrido de cuerpo medio pero con bastante volumen y cierta carnosidad, buena acidez, fruta bien madura y tostados marcados y taninos algo secantes, bastante estructurado, ligeramente musculoso, notas amargas que le aporta mucho aguante en boca y larga persistencia. Final largo, postgusto de fruta madura y retronasal ahumado.
Independiente de lo que diga Parker Jr., creo que es un vino bastante agradable pero enfocado a un público que busca un vino que agrade a la gran mayoría a un muy buen precio.
Está en un buen momento para disfrutar pero seguro que una guarda de 2-3 años le sentará de maravilla.

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.
