HNOS. PEREZ PASCUAS Ribera Del Duero "Viña Pedrosa Gran Reserva" 2009 - 93 points
The 2009 Hnos. Perez Pascuas “Viña Pedrosa Gran Reserva” is a gorgeous release wine that showcases a good vintage that saw exceedingly high summer temperatures and mid – September rains. This dense wine begins with aromas of sandalwood, Mandarin orange peel, black olive and black cherry. Lovely depth, as the wine needs more than an hour to decant to reveal flavors of wild blackberry cobbler, black cherry, pink grapefruit rind and anise. Incredible range of flavors and richness to this wine. This balanced wine will be a long ager.
