Domino de Pingus PSI Tempranillo Ribera del Duero
Blackberry and black-cherry aromas with lavender, cedar and hints of cloves and white pepper, following through to a medium body with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful, creamy finish. A little tight and reserved now. Another impressive PSI. Give it until 2022.

The unbottled sample of the 2019 PSI—which should be bottled around June 2021 if all goes well—is slightly riper than the 2018 I tasted next to it, reflecting the warmer condition of the year. Starting in 2019, they have been working 50 hectares of the vineyards themselves, as they have rented them, with the idea to reach perhaps 100 hectares, half of those used, worked by themselves. This is marginally riper than the 2018, with a darker color, a little more ripeness and tannins with very tasty flavors, more immediate. It still has some months to go to polish the edges, but this is juicier and a little rounder. Yields were a little lower (hence more concentrated), so they expect to produce around 345,000 bottles.
