Deep purple in colour with a complex nose of intense mocha, cranberry and cassis aromas.
Plenty of ripe, dark berry fruit, a good balance and a very long finish.
This wine can be enjoyed now or carefully stored for a further 4 years.
"Purple-coloured, the aromatics reveal notes of mocha, coffee, smoke, violets, spice box, wild cherry and blackberry. Smooth-textured, layered, and well balanced, this (is a) superb effort." 93 points, Wine Advocate, 29-Feb-08 The stunning Finca Villacreces estate is located in Quintanilla de Onesimo on the ‘golden mile’ in the Ribera del Duero DO.

A modern Ribera blend of mainly Tempranillo with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, there's plenty of vivid, youthful, dark berry fruitiness to admire in the aroma and similarly a taut, structured, full-bodied, satisfying, dark cherry fruit juiciness framed by chunky, muscular tannins and classic high-plateau freshness.
The vineyards of Finca Villacreces are some of the oldest in the Ribera, with evidence that vines were planted there in the 13th century. It was purchased by Lalo Anton of Izadi Rioja in 2003 to add further scope to their wine portfolio.The vineyards are now farmed organically, with canopy management and natural treatments used instead of artificial chemicals. As expected, Tempranillo is the mainstay of the vineyards, with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon also planted.
