Barco de Piedra 2014 Ribera del Duero DO New! Login AG 90

Barco de Piedra comes from two plots north of the Duero between the towns of Pesquera del Duero and Valbuena. These vineyards range from 750m to 830m approximately 1000m north of the Duero and primarily south-facing. Within the Finca el Quiñon estate there are several plots, two of which are used to produce Barco- a 2ha plot called Pago del Jaro (diverse mixture of Sand and clay soils), and a 40h plot called Pago de le Piedra (a highly eroded slope of limestone at the top, covered with river rock, and clay at the bottom).

    Vinous

    Vivid purple. Heady smoke- and spice-accented dark berry and cherry aromas, with hints of game and violet emerging with air. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry flavors and repeating smokiness. Shows very good heft and power on the clinging finish, which features smooth tannins and a hint of peppery spices.
