Details
Pago de Carraovejas is one of the most sought after wines produced in Spain, but it's little known in the US.Ê The main reason is that most of it is snatched up by thirsty Spaniards before it has the chance to leave the country.Ê Established by Segovian restauranteur and sommelier Jose Maria Ruiz, it has become one of the crown jewels of Ribera del Duero wines. The Cuesta de las Liebres is a tiny production wine made only in the best vintages from one of the best vineyards within the estate. "90% tempranillo and 10% cabernet sauvignon; aged for two years in new French oak):Ê Inky ruby.Ê A complex, highly aromatic bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cola, mocha and incense, along with subtle notes of vanilla and licorice.Ê Juicy and broad on the palate, offering energetic black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors accented by candied violet and allspice nuances.Ê A zesty mineral element adds lift and cut to the strikingly long, sappy finish, which shows just a whisper of tannins" 94 points International Wine Cellar 92 points Wine Advocate
