We are so excited to get to showcase this amazing lineup, and have the venerable Juan Lopez Sainz, who is the National representative of Emilio Moro winery in to taste through these wines.
Emilio Moro is a third generation, family owned winery, in the heart of Ribiera Del Duero; a region known for producing a truly unique style of Tempranillo. The Tinto Fino clone found there is only found in this region, and is perfectly suited to the intense temperature swings, spring frosts, and extreme elevation they have there, and this winery stands as a long time producer of some amazing examples.
Personally, I am so excited to showcase these different examples of what Tinto Fino can do under proper care, and show the versatility of this grape. If there is a family who knows this region, its definitely the Moro family! The winery can trace its roots back all the way to 1891, and their legacy continues to grow!
Join us Saturday, November 19th at 6:00 P.M. for a very special night, with Spanish meats and cheeses to accompany the wine, because as they say, "What grows together goes together"!
2021 Emilio Moro 'El Zarzal' Godello, Bierzo
93 Points | James Suckling
Straw yellow in colour, on the nose it surprises with its expressiveness and complexity, with notes of white fruits characteristic of the godello grape, nuanced by time and its passage through wood, it is joined by aniseed nuances of dried flowers and a typical minerality of the great vintages. On the palate, the integration of the natural acidity of the godello grape with the smoothness provided by the lees is noticeable, resulting in a harmonious wine that is easy to drink and has a very pleasant aftertaste.

Deep garnet red in color, on the nose it is serious and elegant. The evolution in the glass translates into an increase in intensity and aromatic complexity where the fruit continues to be the backbone of the nose of the wine. On the palate it has a well-structured body with ripe, silky tannins, easy to drink and a persistent aftertaste.

Cherry red in color. On the nose it is expressive with notes reminiscent of recently fermented grapes. The primary aromas and notes of black and red fruits typical of the variety stand out. On the palate it is intense, almost rustic, but easy and friendly thanks to high-quality raw materials and an optimum point of maturity.

Very covered cherry red color, intense on the nose, highlighting ripe black fruits that gain intensity as the wine evolves in the glass. During the tasting, a fruity base is perceived, nuances of the typical aromas of Tempranillo and spicy notes characteristic of the great vintages of this brand. In the mouth it is voluminous, with ripe and silky tannins. The aftertaste is long and very persistent.

This dark-violet-red-colored wine gives off aromas of raspberry, orange zest and cocoa powder. Brilliant acidity washes across and then remains on the palate, joined by plush tannins and flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, milk chocolate, fennel pollen and lavender. Drink through 2047.
