The local name for the Tempranillo clone grown in Ribera del Duero is Tinto Fino. It adapted to the region’s frigid, snowy winters and dry, hot summers, which gives the grapes thicker skins, deeper color, and more tannic structure than its cousin in Rioja. Winemakers here rarely blend Tempranillo with other varietals in the appellation because of its robust character and knockout structure that can be enjoyed young or aged and most definitely pairs well with food.

Causa est is a Latin expression meaning “reason to be” or “reason to exist” and represents the objective for winemaker Isaac Fernandez and his winemaking team at Pinea. Patience is not only a virtue but a necessary component for winemaking. Once a wine comes to its apex in the aging process, it reaches its causa est, leaving an immediate impression that will last a lifetime.

Description

2018 BODEGAS PINEA “17” by PINEA RIBERA del DUERO

“The 2018 ’17 by Pinea is like dancing with Zorro: it’s dark, mysterious, and seriously charming with its elegant nose of violets, dill spice, wild strawberries, blackberries, freshly turned earth, and dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied with a soft texture and fine-grained tannins that carry into a long finish. This wine is drinking beautifully today and has concentrated flavors with an acid structure that will let the wine age gracefully for the next decade.”
96 points
“Expressive ripe raspberry fruit, cinnamon and vanilla nose. Palate is firmly structured and multi-layered, with lovely purity, ripe and round tannins and really good persistence of flavour. Well made and stylish.”
