Ribera del Duero (4/08)

Thanks so much to Lauren and Stephen Shallcross for hosting this round. Having never done a Ribera Tuesday, it was a welcomed theme with the perfect amount of players.

With the arrival of the 2008 vintage, Ribera del Duero will join Priorat and Rioja in the V.I.P. Lounge as only the 3rd region in Spain to have the Denominacion de Origen Calificada (DOCa) certification.

Blind Tasting. Chateau Shallcross.

One Response to “Ribera del Duero (4/08)”

  1. I love the fact that that were four 2004 Emilio Moros and three 2004 Pesqueras. I always find it fun to see if multiple wines are consistent or not in blind tastings.

    Or if “I” am.
