Below is the May, 2007 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:


2005 Tinto Figuero Roble

"4 Months in Barrel"

Ribera del Duero, Spain


2005 Tinto Figuero Roble 4 Months in Barrel Jose Maria Garcia and Milagros Figuero are a vine-growing couple who have devoted their entire lives to looking after their vines. They are proud heirs to a culture that has been handed down through several generations.

Each day is filled with care of more than 45 hectares of vines, over half of which were carefully and meticulously farmed by their ancestors. Some of the vines still producing grapes today date back to the 1930's. The Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from 10-20 year-old vines.

The wine has an intense, deep crimson color. The initial aromas are dominated by new oak, with hints of toast on a spicy background. Ripe blackberries, raspberries and cranberries lurk just beneath the wood, and move through to the palate, which also shows moderate acidity, sweet tannins and the characteristically velvety texture of the Tempranillo grape.

The wine is aged for four months in new oak barrels (85% American and 15% French). It then sees an additional four months of aging in the bottle before leaving the cellar.

This rounded wine combines smoothness, elegance and structure, down to a lingering finish. Give this wine another 1-2 years and drink it for an additional 8-10 years.

Pair with steak, roasts, prime rib, lamb, hearty pork dishes and hard cheeses.

88 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.
