A great concentration of fruit, with the structure and elegance so typical of a good Ribera del Duero, luscious and lengthy, that’s Vizcarra. A wine with a captivating nose and real soul, elegant, aromatic, expressive, generous, and one to drink and enjoy rather than spend time discussing.
Perhaps we do need a few details. Black fruit, notes of cinnamon, ginger and toasted biscuits: fresh, smooth, profound and very intense. Precisely because of its intensity on the nose, we’re expecting a powerful wine, which it certainly is, but also seamless, silky and very well-balanced. It is very much a fruit-driven wine and, although not possessing great complexity, it reveals coffee and chocolate notes on the palate, and is slightly sweet, with good acidity, fresh and appealing; a most enjoyable wine that leaves us with a very pleasant taste in the mouth, displaying mineral undertones and a subtle hint of caramel.
Vizcarra is a genuine Ribera but it also has a special juicy quality which reminds us in its expression of certain Rioja wines; a Tempranillo, when all is said and done. A wine to drink now or to keep, whichever you prefer, as Vizcarra will definitely never disappoint.
