WINE ADVOCATE 94 - "The aromatics on the 2009 Pintia are very intense with lifted wild strawberry, raspberry, mulberry fruit interlaced by dried Read More...
herbs and just a mention of cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that are in synch with the tobacco-tinged red fruit. This has very good structure and symmetry, while the finish displays fine tension and a long, spicy aftertaste. This has very good potential. "

Bodegas Pintia, a 96 hectare estate, is owned by Vega Sicilia. Pintia is located further west along the Duero River inside the warmer DO of Toro.

The distinctive red soils produce a Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo) with tremendous fruit concentration, ripeness, acidity, tannins and structure. Dehesa Gago is the wine Telmo has used to discover and understand the vineyards of Toro, a pure wine that showcases the fruit.
TESO DE LA MONJA 08 ALABASTER
TESO LA MONJA 2008 ALABASTER
Item: #380470
Bottle Size:750ML
$199.98
Quantity

WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "The 2008 Alabaster went through malolactic in new French oak followed by racking to another set of 100% new barrels (Read More...
the so-called 200% new oak treatment) where it remained for 18 months. Purple/black in color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of espresso, tar, licorice, minerals, lavender, and brooding black fruits. On the palate the oak is integrated but this massive effort will require a minimum of 8-10 years to become civilized. Exceptionally dense and rich but with all the right stuff present, it will be interesting to see how this behemoth of a wine turns out in another 15-20 years."

Bodegas Teso La Monja’s wines are made from 100% Tinta de Toro

While Almirez is all satin and spice, Victorino is darker, smokier and more minerally. Victorino is amazingly open for such a big, structured wine. All that blackberry fruit and richness can’Read More...
t be wrong, can it? But with proper cellaring this is the kind of wine that can go another 15-20 years and still not show you all its secrets. Part of the story here is un-grafted vines. Like most placesin the world, the vineyard-pest phylloxera is in nearly every vineyard in Europe, meaning nearly every vine in Spain (as elsewhere) is grafted for protection. Toro’s sandy soils ensure that there are pockets of land where phylloxera cannot live and the vines can be “own-rooted.” We’ve heard a handful of top producers speak reverently about the aromatic complexities of un-grafted vines and perhaps this explains the immediate beauty and “wow” factor of this wine. Then again, it could be the intense hand-de-stemming practices of the Eguren family or the ridiculously low yields of 0.6 tons/acre.

STEPHAN TANZER'S INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 92 POINTS - "Opaque purple. Smoky blueberry and cherry compote aromas pick up a peppery nuance with air, Read More...
along with a subtle mocha quality. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering sweet, concentrated black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of lavender pastille. Spreads out nicely on the juicy, penetrating finish, which is framed by silky, slow-building tannins."

We wrote up the 2011 Teso de la Monja “Almirez” in February which was a runaway success—not really surprising considering the price tag and 94 point review from Robert Parker who noted, “at this quality level, one would expect the price to be three digits or more.” Unfortunately, our stocks lasted less than a week. Of course, this overnight sensation for the “Almirez” was years in coming. We actually bought the winery’s first release on reputation alone, more than a year before it arrived in the states. Look for a style of Tempranillo that shows the maximum power and depth the grape can offer (blueberry, blackberry liqueur, pepper,and smoked meats), balanced by surprising touches of elegance (lavender perfume—year after year). This wine gives the old phrase “the iron fist in a velvet glove” new meaning--the texture here is dense, sumptuous, well balanced and exciting. We think the accolades are going to just keep coming. Get it before it’s gone.

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2012 Romanico (1,500 cases produced) is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local name for Tempranillo), and is aged Read More...
for six months in a combination of new and used French oak. Malolactic is done in oak, and the result is full-bodied, opaque purple-colored wine with superb richness as well as lots of blackberry, charcoal and cassis intermixed with licorice, new saddle leather, pepper and bouquet garni. This nearly viscous red should drink beautifully for 7-10 years"

FIVE GENERATIONS OF VINE AND WINE TRADITION
Since 1870, a period spanning five generations, the Eguren family has been dedicated to the cultivation of vines and the production and ageing of the best wines of La Rioja. They have been able to pass down from father to son both knowledge and tradition yet, at the same time, adapting them to the new advances in technology and always maintaining their respect for the soil and the vine.

The unmistakable and very personal stamp that the family imprints upon the wines, brings together a daily quest for improvement and a passion for a job well done, from the demanding search for the best conditions for grapevine cultivation to the presentation of the final product to the wine lover.
The Eguren family and their wineries enjoy prestige both in Spain and internationally and have won a number of distinctions and prizes.
