Pingus 2010 / 750 ml.

Item#: 35431

ST9696 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Sep/Oct 2012
Opaque ruby. Sappy, seductive aromas of blackberry, blueberry, minerals, potpourri and sweet oak. Rich but vibrant, with incisive, highly complex flavors of black and blue fruits, candied violet, graphite and licorice, and a powerful mineral accent. The endless finish repeats the blue fruit note and clings with outstanding tenacity and focus.
RP95+95–97 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2012
The 2010 Pingus soars from the glass with copious dark cherry, blueberry, blackberry and crushed violet scents that are sensual and alluring. The palate is full-bodied and masculine. Indeed, having tasted this in March it seems to have tightened up in the three month to June. It is sturdy and powerful, with immense weight and presence and yet retains exquisite focus and poise. It builds in the mouth towards the persistent, crystalline blackberries, cassis and cedar-tinged finish that suggests this will be a seriously long-term Pingus. Drink 2018–2030.

Where It's From

Country / Spain

View more wines from Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.

Pingus 2011 / 750 ml.

2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 38013

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Aug 2014
As with all the 2011s, the 2011 Pingus is riper, with never-seen-before alcohol levels (15.5%), but the wine feels extremely balanced. As usual, the highly-selected grapes were fermented in 2,000-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts and aged for 22 months in second-and third-fill barrels. It is ripe and exuberant, with notes of violets, spices (curry!), smoky peat and umami-like meat-broth aromas. The palate is full-bodied, glyceric with sophisticated tannins, but plenty of them, so they need to calm down a little. I believe there will be a lot of people who will really love this 2011, it’s showy and exuberant. 6,000 bottles produced. Drink 2016–2020.

The 2011 Pingus has a gorgeous, pure black cherry, cassis and blueberry scented bouquet interlaced by orange blossom and apricot. The oak is beautifully assimilated into the aromatic profile. The palate is full-bodied with a decadent entry. The tannins are ripe and rounded, imparting great tension and focus. There is both dimension and grace to this formidable Pingus that should blossom once it finishes its gestation. This is an outstanding Ribera del Duero wine. Drink 2020–2035+.

Inky purple. An exotic, expressive bouquet displays scents of blueberry, black cherry, violet, licorice and Asian spices, with a subtle smoky nuance in the background. Offers an array of densely packed black and blue fruit and floral flavors that are enlivened by bright minerality. Shows outstanding clarity and energy on the intense, lingering finish.

Flor de Pingus 2020 / 750 ml.

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 59671

RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Jan 2023
There is around 20% new oak in the 2020 Flor de Pingus, and because it has a little younger vines (there was a land-consolidation project in La Horra in 2006!), there’ll be some Garnacha starting in 2021 and maybe some oak vats for aging too. All this shows the direction, where he found structure and volume in the palate, with textured tannins. It’s harmonious and elegant, aromatic and floral, perfumed and showy, with contained ripeness and around 14% alcohol. The palate is quite powerful, with abundant but fine tannins. 110,000 bottles were filled in July 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)

Plush in texture and elegant overall, with a fresh spine of acidity enlivening black plum reduction and crushed black cherry fruit, violet and tobacco, vanilla and mineral accents as they wrap around a firm core of fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030. 9,000 cases made. (Alison Napjus)
