W&S June 2020 On Sale Today (News & Features)

This spring, I’ve been marking the changes of the season with a heightened sense of wonder, with an intensity I don’t recall since childhood. The first dawn with a phoebe singing by the pond. Raking out the daylilies and daffodils, then watching them recover from a late...Read Full Story

Goyo García Viadero 2011 Ribera del Duero Finca Viñas de Arcilla (Wine Review)

The wines of Goyo García are more delicate, fruity and refreshing than most Ribera del Duero, thanks to his very old vines in the Roa area, in the province of Burgos, and his tendency to pick early. He limits intervention in his winemaking, using ambient yeasts, no new...Read Full Story

r+2014 Ribera del Duero (Wine Review)

Delicious tempranillo, with deep red fruit, hints of herbs and spice, and an edgy tannic texture. (W&S 6/16)

Pago de los Capellanes 2010 Ribera del Duero Parcela El Picon (Wine Review)

El Picón, a 4.9-acre parcel planted on clay and chalky soils, produced a radiant 2010. Like many of the best wines of the vintage, this remains youthful, with fresh red fruit flavors that belie its six years of age. Under the bright fruit, it offers earthy notes, pulsing with...Read Full Story

García Figuero 2012 Ribera del Duero Viñas Viejas (Wine Review)

More than 50 years ago, the García and Figuero families selected cuttings from their prephylloxera vines, planting what are now their Viñas Viejas.

Altos del Terral 2009 Ribera del Duero T1 (Wine Review)

Determined to make an elegant wine from tinto fino, she found a high-elevation site (2,950 feet above sea level) with 80-year-old vines. This 2009 is her second vintage, and the first in which she split the vineyard by...Read Full Story

Emilio Moro 2013 Ribera del Duero Finca Resalso (Wine Review)

Elegant and refined, this leaves behind the bombastic style of heavily extracted Ribera del Duero reds in favor of vibrantly fresh red fruit and a firm structure. It's the simplest and most affordable bottling from Emilio Moro, produced from young vines, between five and 15 years old, ready to decant...Read Full Story

Goyo García Viadero 2009 Ribera del Duero Viñas de Anguix (Wine Review)

Like an exhibitionist, this Ribera shows off its freshness for anyone who cares to see. Floral in its scent, vibrantly refreshing in its red fruit flavor and taut texture, this is, above all, easy to drink. But the word "easy" in this context does not mean "simple." The layers...Read Full Story

Pérez Pascuas 2009 Ribera del Duero Viña Pedrosa La Navilla (Wine Review)

Presented in Pérez Pascuas's old-school style, this comes from a vineyard of old tinto fino vines at about 2,800 feet, in Pedrosa del Duero. The scent of roasted coffee beans may be the first element to emerge from the glass, but stay with the wine and it builds in...Read Full Story
