Bodegas Jaro
Ribera del Duero

The estate of El Quinon was originally a clerical property. It passed on to private hands in the 19th century in a historical nationalization known in Spain as “Amortizacion de Mendizabal” (1845). It is located in the village of Pesquera de Duero, in Valladolid provence, above the road that goes from Pesquera de Duero to Valbuena de Duero. The total surface is 108 hectares (267 acres), but only 65 of them are vineyards. Tempranillo is the most planted variety, with a total of 60 hectares, and it shares the vineyard with some 2.5 hectares of Merlot and 2.5 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sembro 2006 (750ml)
eParker score: 90 points (# 183 June 2009)
"The 2006 Sembro is 100% Tempranillo aged in French and American oak for four months. Purple-colored, it has a super-fragrant bouquet of cedar, forest floor, wild cherry, and blackberry. This is followed by a full-flavored, mouth-filling, easy-going wine with tons of savory fruit and no hard edges. Drink this pleasure-bent effort over the next four years.


Sembro 2007 (750ml)
The winemaker has captured the liveliest, fresh and true varietal character of the Tempranillo variety from two of their Pagos (Pagos del Jaro y Pago de la Piedra) within the property of Bodegas Jaro in Ribera del Duero. It is a wine with high aromatic intensity with reminiscent notes of wild forest berries that blend beautifully with the faint touch of oak; the wine was aged for 7 months in both French and American oak barrels. The introduction of 7% Merlot to the blend adds a nice core and weight to the wine leaving you with rich flavors of black fruits together with a good structure that is classic of the great wines from the area of Pesquera del Duero.


Jaros 2005 (750ml)
eParker score: 90 points (# 183 June 2009)
"The 100% Tempranillo 2005 Jaros Crianza was aged in one third new French and American oak for 14 months. Its expressive nose gives up aromas of smoke, mineral, leather, and black cherry. Elegant on the palate, it has outstanding concentration, loads of savory fruit, and enough structure to permit 5-7 years of further evolution. Drink this lengthy effort from 2014 to 2025.


Jaros 2006 (750ml)
Wine Spectator score: 90 points
"This wine gets it right. The color is dark and opaque, while the nose offers perfume, Middle Eastern spice, fruitcake and solid black fruit. Enticing in the mouth, where full black fruit flavors are pumped up by fine herb and spice notes. And then coffee and chocolate fill the finish. Drink now through 2010.


Chafandin 2005 (750ml)
eParker score: 91 points (# 183 June 2009)
The 2005 Chafandin was aged for 17 months in new 300-liter French oak. It was sourced from a single parcel of 35-year-old vines. Purple-colored, it delivers a fragrant perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, black cherry, and blackberry. Lean and racy on the palate, it has an elegant personality, intense flavors, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it from 2017 to 2030.


Chafandin 2006 (750ml)
Wine Spectator score: 91 points
"Robust and rich in style, with big aromas of bacon, violets, wild herb, shoe polish and more. The palate is exuberant and generous, while the flavors of toasty black fruits, earth and mocha are nicely presented. Shows a little heat and roughness, but that will settle with bottle age.


Sed de Cana 2005 (750ml)
“Smoky oak with tea leaf and chocolate. Fresh, mineral acidity, balanced with brambly red fruit and well-handled and well-integrated oak. Drink from 2009.”
Decanter Rating:
Sed de Cana is made from a limited selection of 2000 kgs of grapes from the Chafandin vineyard in excepcional vintages, which represents 0.75% of total production, harvested separately from the lowest yielding vines. The wine is made totally in oak, using French oak barrels, including the malolactic fermentation, which takes plae in the same barrels. It is aged for 15 to 20 months. Production ranges between 1,500 to 1,900 bottles per harvest
