Parker review

Abadia Retuerta is located just outside the DO of Ribera del Duero. It was once part of the Vega Sicilia estate and was revived when a Swiss pharmaceutical company purchased the land in 1991. They own 210 hectares of vineyard dispersed over 54 plots interpolated with pine forest, and the wines are vinified in a state-of-the-art winery. The premium wines spend 14 to 18 months in French and American oak (64% and 36% respectively). These are impressive wines, although in terms of value for money, I would head straight to the 2009 Seleccion Especial, a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. It has a rounded, iodine-tinged bouquet with great purity and panache, the oak seamlessly integrated with scents of black coffee developing over time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy texture, crisp acidity and very fine tannins. It has a velvety, caressing texture with blackberry, cassis and espresso towards the precise, supple finish. This is an accomplished, flavor-packed wine that should repay a few month’s cellaring. Drink now 2013-2018.
