VIÑA PEDROSA RESERVA
D.O. RIBERA DEL DUERO - SPAIN
Talking About the Wines:
-Wine Advocate, Jan '23 gave 93+ points to 2019 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. “Tasted next to a magnum of the 2018, the 2019 Viña Pedrosa Reserva revealed a more classical and balanced profile with better balance and freshness despite having been cropped from a warm and dry vintage. The wine matured in barrique for two years but doesn’t show excessively oaky or ripe, coming through as classically proportioned and powerful, with the elegant rusticity of the zone. It should develop nicely in bottle.”
-Wine Advocate, Jan '23 gave 93 points to 2018 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. “Tasted from magnum, the 2018 Viña Pedrosa Reserva feels young and powerful, with high ripeness and a textured palate with abundant finegrained tannins and a long, dry finish.”
-Dr. Owen Bargreen, Sept '22 gave 93 points to 2018 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. "A brilliant Reserva bottling, the 2018 Vina Pedrosa ‘Reserva’ Ribera del Duero shows off black tea and exotic spices on the nose, with red currant and worn leather accents. The palate is fresh and refined with silky tannins that frame a core of rich dark fruits, graphite and chocolate.”
