“Drinking it with friends is always a pleasure.
A wine with high layer, cherry colour. The berry smell can be appreciated. I think it was a little bit salty.
I had it with fish, but I didn't like the fish, and therefore the wine didn't taste right.”

BODEGA: DOMAIN PINGUS
OD: Ribera del Duero
TYPE OF WINE: RED WITH FOSTER
Red cherry, covered, discreet violet trim, clean and bright silky thin tear, great structure. The nose has aromas of very ripe fruit blackberries, blueberries and strawberries, others appear gradually as cocoa, toast and vanilla. Soft palate attack of great expression, in its route it is becoming roundness of these well assembled tannins and acids, the end is great, and the aftertaste and persistence.
PAIRING: Ideal to accompany grilled meats or grilled, game meats, stews, game, vegetable dishes such as stewed beans with ham or cabbage with bacon, or even fish such as hake in sauce or fish stew.”
“The Danish Peter Sisseck put on the market in the first Pingus 1995. Enthusiasm cropped and especially the 98 points awarded by Robert Parker already in this first vintage made him cult winemaker. It was the first Spanish wine to approach the top of the prestigious list of U.S. critical. But the path of glory did not stop here and just reap the coveted 100: Pingus 2004 is one of the top five Spanish wines deservedly proud to have achieved the highest score. In the 2007 list, not one but five Spanish wines reach for the first time in history, the symbol of "perfection": Pingus 2004 Termanthia 2004 Viña El Pison 2004, Contador and 2004 Clos Erasmus 2004.
And this wine is almost perfect. The concentration is ideal and dramatically intense fruit aromas, accompanied by elegant notes of coffee, chocolate and toasted woods, leaving the tannins in the background. The finish is very long. It remembers up to a minute after having disappeared from the mouth. In fact, it's so rich, complex and expressive to be taken alone.”
