    The flagship 2009 Vina Sastre Pesus comes from some of the oldest Tempranillo vines, some of them planted in 1905. After a rigorous sorting the wine is aged in 200% new oak, the first for malolactic fermentation and then for maturation, before being bottled in glass so thick, it could survive an assassination. Having been introduced personally to the vines, I really wanted to find all that oak marrying in blissful harmony with the precocious fruit, yet there is no doubt that all that can be discerned aromatically is the wood. The palate is medium rather than full-bodied and is very fleshy and caressing in the mouth. Here, I do find that the oak is assimilated with the fruit and does not impinge too much. It has a very ripe, quite sweet sorbet-like finish, with a dab of alcohol at the back of the throat that is not particularly disturbing. It is a decadent, powerful, intense experience and it needs a serious amount of aging. For those lazy enough to think I am dogmatic about a lot of new oak – this is a deliriously delicious wine. But it needs 8- 10 years to fully absorb the wood. I wonder what it would be like with less oak? Drink 2018-2030.

Region

Ribera del Duero

The Duero valley cuts a swathe across central northern Spain all the way to Portugal where it is called the Douro and is famous as the home of port. On the Spanish side, a relatively new but significant and exciting area for wine production has grown up around the city of Valladolid and was granted DO status in 1982. Ribera del Duero's potential was spotted long before in the middle of the 19th century at Bodegas Vega Sicilia, Spain's undisputed equivalent of a first growth Claret. High above sea-level, Ribera del Duero is an area of extreme temperatures with the potential to produce deep-coloured, intensely flavoured red wines from tempranillo grapes (known locally as tinto fino). The picture is not straightforward as some producers have started favouring an overly-extracted style which appeals to certain elements of the media. Additionally, often producers do not own their own vineyards, so the grape growers have a stranglehold on what to charge for their grapes and wine prices have risen dramatically as a result. However, many producers are making outstanding wines, which are still great value for money.
