Arzuaga 2013 Crianza, Ribera Del Duero
Bodegas Arzuaga has the extraordinary distinction of being the the next door neighbor to Bodegas Vega Sicilia. In Spain's diminutive Ribera Del Duero region every winery is distinctive, but to have vineyards right up against what is arguably Spain's most iconic wine is pretty special. The Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties in this wine is produced are grown in the oldest area of La Planta estate. They are cultivated at 2800 feet of altitude on clayey limestone soil. The blend is 90% Temranillo, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot. Grape clusters are hand harvested, sorted, de-stemmed and vatted in stainless steel tanks. After a few days of cold maceration they undergo alcoholic fermentation. The wine aged 16 months in 50% French and 50% American oak barrels. The Wine Advocate said "The 2011 Arzuaga Crianza is Tempranillo with 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot aged for 16 months in a mixture of French and American oak barriques (50/50). It has an herbal, balsamic touch from the Bordeaux varieties mixed with ripe plums, black cherries and plenty of spices from the oak. The palate feels warm with round, ripe tannins and enough acidity. Drink now-2017." The best thing of course is that this racy Ribera is about one tenth the price of its tony next door neighbor. Don't miss it.
