Vizcarra Roble is an estate-bottled wine made by Bodegas Vizcarra. The most inexpensive wine made by this first-class bodega in the Ribera del Duero DO, Vizcarra Roble is a great value. With black fruit, mineral and violet characters, it shows solid and consistent quality every year. Vizcarra Roble has the complexity of a serious wine for a very reasonable price. In great vintages, this wine over-delivers due to the high quality of the fruit while in difficult years, a portion of Vizcarra's top wines Celia ($145/bottle) or Ines ($155) is put into the blend for Vizcarra Roble to ensure the wine maintains quality. Very little oak is used and all transfers of must or wine are by gravity. This cuvée showcases the youthful elegance of Ribera del Duero in a distinctive manner. Founded in 1991 by Juan Carlos Vizcarra, Bodegas Vizcarra has 26 hectares (64 acres) of vineyards in the towns of Mambrilla and Roa, in the northern central area of Ribera del Duero within Burgos province.
GRAPE: 100% Tempranillo (Tinto Fino). Organically grown vines planted in 1950-1998. Tended in limestone and sandy soil at 849 m (2,785 ft) elevation.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Pork and lamb, especially grilled or roasted, are ideal pairings for this wine, but beef, from steaks and roasts to more casual burgers, also works very well. If you like spices, this wine has the “stuffing” to stand up to Cajun or Midwestern BBQ and pulled pork, and it will go well with Greek gyros, Cuban ropa vieja and dishes with Mediterranean spices.
