92-95 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2009 Alonso del Yerro, tasted from a barrel sample, is purple/black in color with outstanding density and richness. It is a promising effort from what looks to be a great Tempranillo vintage in Ribera del Duero. Derenoncourt finds it reminiscent of the 2004."
"The current owners purchased this estate in 2002 and hired Stephane Derenoncourt of Bordeaux renown as consultant. The Alonso del Yerro cuvee, made from 100% Tempranillo, typically goes through ML in barrel followed by 12 months sur lie with batonnage in new French oak. The Maria cuvee (also 100% Tempranillo) is fermented in new oak vats, goes through a longer maceration than the Alonso bottling, and is aged in new French oak for 18 months sur lie with batonnage. As a side note, Vinedos Alonso del Yerro has started a new project in neighboring Toro called Paydos. I tasted barrel samples of the first two vintages, 2008 and 2009. They were both exceptional; the 2009, in particular, due to the virtually perfect vintage conditions in Toro." (06/10)
"The diversity of soils, placed over 800m of altitude and all of them very chalky from the red clay typical of Ribera to the gravel sands, results in the complexity and style of the Alonso del Yerro. Deep red color. Powerful nose with ripe fresh fruit, spices and liquorice. The mouth, delicate and sweet-toothed, elegantly expresses the floral and liquoriced aromas of the Tempranillo. Fresh fruit, with a highly roasted touch thanks to the barrel. Silky tannins and a long persistence in mouth." -Winery
"A typical vintage from the Ribera. Our cold winter, dry spring, and a very warm and dry summer allowed a healthy and very little interfering viticulture. From September onwards, the cold temperatures during the night favored the grape's maturity to the tannic and aromatic level. A great vintage, mature and complete, which allowed the grape to express the qualities of our 'terroir'." -Winery
