"Racheting up the level of complexity, concentration, and intensity is the 150-case cuvee of 2003 Alonso del Yerro Maria (100% Tempranillo). Aged completely in new French oak, with malolactic in barrel and aging sur-lie for 18 months, with a bit of batonnage, this is Stephane Derenoncourt's 'La Mondotte treatment' in Ribera del Duero. A super-heady, flamboyant, exuberant nose of sweet, peppery black cherries, plums, and espresso roast is followed by a voluptuously textured, full-bodied, pure wine with wonderful sweetness, definition, and vibrancy. This is a stunning wine to drink now as well as over the next decade."
