Pico Cuadro 'Original'
Ribera del Duero 2010
Free Shipping on 4 or more

***80% OFF!***
 
This Ribera del Duero is sourced from a single vineyard of 100% Tempranillo vines with 80+ years of age. The wine is all about precision with clean and distinct aromas of blackberry, raspberry, violet, cinnamon, and leather along with a note of black licorice. Characteristics of the bouquet translate seamlessly to the palate along with secondary flavors of roasted coffee, minerality and black pepper spice. Lively acidity and fine-grained tannins give this Spanish red a focused structure and impressive depth. A must-have bottle for any fan of the region!

Bodegas Pico Cuadro 2010 'Original' Ribera del Duero
Points: 92
Region: Ribera Del Duero
Country: Spain
Bright violet. Intensely perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and incense, with a bright mineral overtone. Juicy, penetrating and lithe, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors lifted by zesty acidity. An energetic and impressively persistent finish features silky tannins, subtle oak spices and a sexy floral pastille nuance. Josh Raynolds, September 2013

2010 Pico Cuadro Pico Cuadro 'Original'
A Tempranillo Dry Red Table wine from Spain, Ribera del Duero, Castilla Leon, Spain
Review by Neal Martin
Wine Advocate # 205 (Feb 2013)
Rating: 91 
Drink 2013 - 2020
The 2010 Pico Cuadro Original offers an earthier bouquet than the 2009, with broody blackberry, cedar and iodine aromas that remain tightly wound. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins. The acidity is crisp, lending this a linearity that the 2009 does not possess. The finish is still rather blunt at this stage and will need 3-4 year bottle-age to soften, but it has the structure to age well. Drink 2014-2020. I visited Pico Cuadro, apparently the smallest bodega member of the Consejo Regulador, to meet winemaker Felipe Castrillo Martin (no relation). When he began in 2004, the production was just 12,000 bottles, although it has since expanded. He does not own vineyards but sources from growers under contract from around Ribera del Duero under which he manages the vines throughout the growing season. The wine is fermented in nine wooden vats in the winery located in Quintanilla de Onesimo. I found this address to be a good source of well-crafted wines.

Though I wish this were firmer, with a more persistent acidity, the depth of the fruit is impressive, a mix of blackberries and strawberries that span the mouth with a languorous power, as if stretching its muscles after a nap. Classic Wines Selections, Stamford, CT

Description
Made from a single vineyard, vinified in French oak and aged in a total of 15 barrels, this wine displays outstanding individual character. It has total traceability from the vine to the bottle. Unblended, it is produced from a plot of vines over 80 years old, growing in poor, gravelly, sandy soils, which bring the wine much of its unique personality. This is the expression of a unique vineyard.
