Creta Ribera del Duero Roble 2011 750ML    
Sku: 48461

Creta is a partnership between Eric Solomon & Isaac Fernández Montaña. Isaac is one of the team of winemakers working at Mariano Garcia's family bodega, Mauro, located in Tudeladel Duero. Mariano Garcia is perhaps Spain's greatest winemaker and, with thirty vintages at Vega Sicilia under his belt, he is arguably one of the finest winemakers in the world. Isaac is Mariano's nephew and great winemaking clearly seems to run in the family. Isaac's philosophy is this: "I try to make wines of the highest possible quality based on each year and look to be able to offer to them to the world with reasonable and competitive prices. I try to respect to the maximum the identity of the vineyards and of the grapes with which I work, despite this it is not an impediment to be able to develop my wines and to equip to them with an elegance that differentiates to them from the rest."

Rating
"It is not easy to find a Ribera del Duero for under $25 a bottle, but this 100% Tempranillo aged four months in both French and American oak (70% and 30% respectively) is a joint venture between importer Eric Solomon and proprietor Isaac Fernandez. From a 70-year-old vineyard, this outstanding red wine offers notes of melted chocolate, black cherry jam, cedarwood, charcoal and damp earth. Rich, dense, supple-textured, fleshy and medium to full-bodied, it should drink well for 4-5 years. As are all of the wines in this report, it is a very impressive value." Wine Advocate, 90 Points
