The 2006 Pingus is a spectacular effort. A glass-staining saturated opaque purple, it delivers an other-worldly perfume of smoke, lavender, mineral, scorched earth, and an amalgam of kinky black fruits. Voluptuous on the palate in a measured way, it has superb balance, layered, complex flavors, ripe tannin that is entirely covered by the fruit, and a decade of aging potential. This monumental wine will evolve effortlessly for 10-15 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Still young, this powerful red is thick with tannins. The cassis and black plum flavors are sweet and fresh, concentrated and focused.—Non-blind Pingus vertical (January 2012). Best from 2014 through 2026. 555 cases made. –TM

Dominio de Pingus

Dominio de Pingus

The recently established, but not at all inexperienced, Dominio de Pingus estate has gathered quite a following since 1995, making them one of today’s top cult-wines coming from the Ribera del Duero. Owner, Peter Sisseck had already made a name for himself as vigneron of Hacienda Monasterio before acquiring several plots planted to old vine Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) for himself. Sisseck takes a more modern approach to his wines, using malolactic fermentation in barrel to produce supple, velvety textured wines. His efforts are more than appreciated, creating intense, pure, dark and even spicy fruit flavors throughout his best wines. His original aim to produce “an unmistakably Spanish, terroir-driven wine…a garage wine,” has come to terms in his world-acclaimed wines. Extremely limited, his best wine, Pingus, a pure Tempranillo has consistently been a showstopper – ranking amongst the best of the appellation year after year. The award winning estate also produces a more reasonably priced Flor de Pingus, and PSI, a blend of predominately Tempranillo and Garnacha making the wine fruit-forward, fresh and pleasantly approachable. ...

Grapes

Tempranillo is Spain’s most planted red variety and its flagship grape found in many of the country’s most sought-after D.O.’s and revered wines. It has thick skins and ripens early (“tempro” meaning early in Spanish). Depending on where it is grown, it can produce wines of different styles. In Rioja it is blended often with Mazuelo (Carignan), Graciano, Garnacha and/or Viura to produce medium-bodied wines that are fine-tuned. Alternatively, in Ribera del Duero, it can produce much more structured and full-bodied wines, when yields are kept to a minimum. Also depending on where it is grown, it can go by many names such as Tinto de Toro in Toro, Tinto Fino in Ribera and Tinta Roriz in Portugal where it contributes to the blend in Douro’s dry and fortified wines. ...
Tempranillo
Castilla y León

Castilla y León

Castilla y León produces an impressive variety of wines including those from some of the most famed Denominaciones de Origen. Among these lies the renowned Ribera del Duero, which crafts fine reds of Tempranillo (also known as Tinta del País, Tinto de Toro and Tinto Fino); but also Rueda which is better known for their whites made from Viura, Sauvignon and Verdejo; while Toro produces strong, powerful reds along the Portuguese border. Located on the northern half of the central Iberian Plateau which sits between 700 - 1000 meters, this region stretches from the north coast all the way down to Madrid, and to the west, Castilla y León borders Portugal. Here the varied landscapes and climatic conditions make this possibly the most eclectic wine region in all of Spain. Spotted with far-reaching valleys, great flat plains and steep mountain chains, Castilla y León is home to several unique micro-climates that produce a wide array of wines that cater to all tastes. There are the exuberant reds of Toro and the refined whites of Rueda, but also the Cava of Arando de Duero and the world class reds of Ribera del Duero – making Castilla y León a leader in Spain’s quality wines. ...
