Five Towns Wine & Liquor

Creta Ribera Del Duero Roble


WHY WE LIKE IT - Fantastic - over achieving red!

TASTING NOTES - Inky ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented dark fruits, pungent flowers and subtle oak spiciness on the perfumed nose. Smooth and fleshy on the palate, showing good heft as well as energy to the bitter cherry and blackberry flavors. Finishes long and spicy, with even tannins and bright closing lift.

PRODUCTION NOTES - Creta is an Eric Solomon custom cuvée made in partnership with Rafael de Haan from 30-50 year old Tempranillo vines planted in the village of Sotillo de la Ribera. It is harvested by hand, brought to the cellar where the grapes are destemmed and lightly crushed.

PARK PLACE SOMMELIER PAIRING - Pair with roasted/grilled meats with an herbal/savory preparation, hearty stews & sauces and tomato-based sauces & stews. Try with Fennel-Garlic Pork Roast.
