Vinedos Alonso del Yerro

Deep red colour. Powerful nose with ripe fresh fruit, spices and liquorice. The mouth, delicate and sweet-toothed, elegantly expresses the floral and liquoriced aromas of the Tempranillo. Fresh fruit, with a highly roasted touch thanks to the barrel. Silky tannins and a long persistence in mouth.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Alonso del Yerro went through malolactic fermentation in new French oak and was aged sur lie for 12 months with batonnage. Purple-colored, it has an enticing bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, violets, spice notes, and black cherry jam. Suave, sweet, and layered on the palate, it has loads of savory fruit, excellent concentration, and several years of aging potential. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2026. (92+)

Score: 92. —Jay Miller, June 2009.

International Wine Cellar

Opaque ruby. Fresh red berries and cherry on the nose, with sexy Asian spices and minerals adding energy. Seamless raspberry and candied cherry flavors stain the palate but are almost weightless, with fine-grained tannins adding shape. An understated, precise wine that finishes with excellent clarity and persistence.

Score: 92. —Josh Raynolds, October 01, 2008.

Wine Spectator

This red shows good concentration, with plum, licorice, meat and smoke notes in a thick texture, framed by firm tannins. Needs time to unpack, but makes an impression. This was the better of two bottles. Best from 2010 through 2015. 400 cases imported.

Score: 90. —Thomas Matthews, 2009.
