Characteristics of Tarsus Roble

Tarsus Roble is a red wine made by the Tarsus winery in the D.O. Ribera del Duero. This winery is part of the Pernod Ricard Bodegas group. The winery, in the French "Chateau" style, is located in the municipality of Anguix, Burgos. The enologist Teresa Rodríguez is in charge of the winery’s wines, which are highly concentrated and aromatic.
In addition, the name Tarsus, comes from the term Tarsus, an ancient city in the region of Cilicia (Turkey), which is considered as one of the first places where wine was cultivated and produced.
Tarsus Roble is a single-variety Tinta del País wine. The grapes come from the winery’s own vineyards planted in double-wire trellis, an innovation developed by the winery to encourage a fully vegetative and physiological evolution of the strain.
After a conventional vinification, Tarsus Oak is aged for 4 months in American (70%) and French (30%), new and semi-new oak barrels.
Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Tarsus Roble

The 2017 vintage rated as "Very Good" has been characterized by being a warm and dry year. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. Yet without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28th, immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in major production losses. This mishap was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Due to these events the wines of this year are characterized by being wines with more volume and medium acidity. Perfect to drink while young and with a good capacity for aging.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
Sight Red colour with purple rim. Nose On the nose there are red and black fruit notes. Fine wood notes with liquorice tones. Taste On the palate it is a broad and tasty wine. The fruit is present with clean and fine wood notes. A long finish.
Sight

Cherry red with violet hues. 

Nose

The nose is expressive and with great intensity. Prevalence of cherries and plums accompanied by fine toasted aromas from aging.

Taste

The palate is intense and flavoursome. Lots of fruit rounded by flavours from the maturation in the oak barrels. Good acidity with some tannins present.

After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
Sight Cherry red colour with violet nuances. Clean and bright wine with good tears. Nose Very expressive aromas typical of the variety. The red fruit stands out on a nose nuanced by the soft toasted aromas and the light spicy notes. Taste Intense, smooth, fresh and tasty wine with a good, silky and very nice mid palate. A wine in which the notes of fruit and wood are perfectly balanced. Good acidity and tannins slightly noticeble. Lingering finish.
Sight Red color with violet tones. Nose Great expressiveness and intensity, predominantly red fruits are complemented by fine toasty notes. Taste One perceives the weight of the ripe fruit well assembled with wood. Tasty, intense, elegant. With a silky, lingering end.
