Emilio Moro Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2011

Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate 92 pts:

The 2011 Emilio Moro is pure Tempranillo from different vineyards on different soils (clay, chalk and stone) fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats and aged for one year in barrels, 50% French and 50% American. It’s dark, almost opaque, a little closed, displaying a serious, concentrated profile with aromas of plums, ripe black cherries and fine spices from the barrel. Somehow it has aromas that bring me back to the Riberas of yesteryear, notes of candied orange peel and good quality American oak. The palate is full-bodied with extremely fine tannins, big-sized but balanced and with acidity and stuffing to age magnificently in bottle. An impressive 600,000 bottles were produced, of which around 35% are exported. This is a very good value."

Vinous  91pts:

Bright violet color. Heady, smoke-accented aromas of black and blue fruits, allspice, vanilla and cola, with a suave floral nuance in the background. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering intense blueberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of spicecake. The vanilla and smoke notes come back on the long, smooth, appealingly sweet finish, which is framed by gentle tannins ( Antonio Galloni)
