Score: 91 – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2004 Vintage)
“Ronda was a highly regarded wine region in the pre-phyloxera 19th century. Today it lacks an entry in The Oxford Companion to Wine, 3rd Edition. However, thanks to people like the estate owner, Jose Manuel Ramos-Paul, and progressive importers like Eric Solomon, such regions are being resurrected. The 2004 Ramos Paul is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Tempranillo, 15% Syrah, and 10% Merlot. Dark ruby-colored, it has a lovely nose of cedar, tobacco, black currant, and blackberry. Plush on the palate, with a full-bodied personality, this well-balanced, spicy wine has a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.”

This wine makes it to us from a little town called Andalusia in the Ronda region of Spain. Here the vines struggle in nearly solid rock to survive and produce near perfect juices for wine making.  The wine meets your eye with deep, dark ruby hues. The senses are greeted with aromas of cedar, currants, blackberry, and a small amount of tobacco translating to the palate with flavors that are plush and velvet cocoa dancing with blackberries, black currants, crushed in a granite mortar and pastel to give I t just a hint of flintiness. The finish lingers giving rise to an easy addiction that will be resolved by the inability to attain more of this nectar.
