The wine

Undoubtedly, a magnificent wine for entering into the unique world of Peter Sisseck, one of the wine makers who has done most for the Ribera denomination in recent times. This great oenologist is looking to offer here a fresher and more fruit-forward wine profile, without the concentration which characterises his highly-esteemed Flor de Pingus and Pingus. This is probably the reason why several well-respected critics, such as Luis Gutiérrez from Robert Parker’s team, admit to having recalled the old vintages of Tinto Pesquera on sniffing this wine. Its elegance and its character of an open and generous red, yet with ageing capability, are something very difficult to find among today’s red wines.

What does this wine taste like?

This wine comes much closer to the actual fruit juices, especially red fruits such as strawberries and raspberries, yet cranberries are there too. A juicy wine, intense on the palate, with spicy notes and very subtle hints of oak-ageing, delicious and refreshing.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

The unbottled sample of the 2019 PSI—which should be bottled around June 2021 if all goes well—is slightly riper than the 2018 I tasted next to it, reflecting the warmer condition of the year. Starting in 2019, they have been working 50 hectares of the vineyards themselves, as they have rented them, with the idea to reach perhaps 100 hectares, half of those used, worked by themselves. This is marginally riper than the 2018, with a darker color, a little more ripeness and tannins with very tasty flavors, more immediate. It still has some months to go to polish the edges, but this is juicier and a little rounder. Yields were a little lower (hence more concentrated), so they expect to produce around 345,000 bottles.

Deep crimson. Sweet fruit that does slightly recall the C&B Côtes-du-Rhône(!) but with more undertow. There's the spice of high-elevation Ribera and an impressively persistent, vibrant, dry finish. Pretty persistent. Pretty grainy. Fun – especially if viewed as a lively alternative to the much, much more expensive other wines from Sisseck.
