  • *This wine takes one extra day to ship. Sembro is the "Joven" in the Vinas del Jaro range of wines but it is essentially a rarity in that it is produced from a Grand Cru vineyard site. This is similar to top Burgundy producers who also may produce a "Bourgogne Rouge" but where a lot of the fruit is from the same producer's Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards..

    • Vintage: 2020
    • Appellation: D.O. Ribera del Duero
    • Grapes: 100% Tempranillo
    • Aging period: 4 months in oak barrels 
    • Oak: French oak 
  • Tasting Notes

    "Aromas include dark plums, dark cherries, blackberries, boysenberries, and pomegranate. Flavors include blackberries, dark cherries, dark plums, and hints of nectarines. There is a medium body with a refreshing minerally entry, good balance and acidity, and a more full and fully saturated finish.

  • Vinas del Jaro vineyards are near a "very prestigious" producer in the Ribera del Duero (Vega Sicilia). The rest of the neighborhood is pretty good too as Peter Sisseck's Hacienda Monasterio vineyards are on the other side of the Vinas de Jaro estate. These vineyards are of course in the "golden mile" of Ribera del Duero vineyards on a perfectly situated south-facing hill which adds a huge amount of depth and complexity to their wines. While on one hand, this estate does produce the traditional range of Spanish wines (Joven, Crianza, Reserva, and Gran Reserva), effectively all of the wines benefit from the overall "Grand Cru" location of where the estate is located. Within the estate, there is also a "single vineyard" site (Chafandin) that has quite a history as the 2003 "Reserva" wine sourced entirely from this parcel was awarded the "Champion Red Wine" prize in 2006 during the very prestigious London International Wine Challenge. The estate's Gran Reserva wine, Sed de Cana, is only made in truly exceptional years from a special selection of grapes from the same Chafandin parcel.

    Vinas del Jaro winemaker, Alvaro, displays winemaking knowledge at its finest which is respecting the grapes and understanding their potential. Each wine produced also feels like a natural extension of the vineyards where the grapes were grown without any additional "intervention" to affect flavor profiles. The end result across the range of wines are very delightful food-friendly wines with great balance and which will be described in more detail in the wine descriptions below.
