Valderiz Juegabolos Barricas Seleccionadas (4 de 10) 2006 (750ML)
94 WA
Juegabolos is a single vineyard Ribera del Duero made solely of Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo.) Planted by Tomas Esteban of Bodegas Valderiz, Juegabolos is a vineyard full of boulders, river stones and sand. A site that many would never assume to be ideal for any type of grape production. Yet Esteban persisted and in doing so he has developed one of the most interesting vineyards of the Duero. Jeugabolos Barricas Seleccionadas 4/10 takes what Esteban has done with the vineyard a step further. The 2006 Barricas Seleccionadas 4/10 is the first ever vintage produced and is a selection of four out of the ten barrels of wine made from Juegabolos. The four barrels selected were barrels 7 through 10 and these barrels blended together in equal proportions yields a Ribera del Duero of power, concentration, deep mineral overtones of slate, stone and fresh water that is held in check by dark black fruit, chocolate and notes of tobacco. "The 2006 Juegabolos Barricas Seleccionadas, Cuatro de Diez was fermented naturally with ML in barrel before spending 30 months in 100% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sends up aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, olives, herbs, violets, licorice, and blackberry. This leads to a complex, savory, plush wine with great volume, serious depth and concentration, and impeccable balance. This exceptionally lengthy offering will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring and present a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2031. ...94" WA 04/10
