2005 San Cristobal Ribera del Duero
You can never have too much of a good thing. When we brought in the 2004 San Cristobal Ribera del Duero, we sold out of it very quickly. Our customers, even though they had never heard of this wine before, quickly became fans of this wine. With the 2005 vintage, San Cristobal looks to have a repeat of its past success. It garnered a 91 point rating from the Wine Advocate, saying it is more structured than the 2004. At $19.99, this is a great buy. To sweeten the deal, we're throwing in free shipping when you purchase a case. Be sure to check out the full Wine Advocate review below as well as a video of Gary tasting the '05 San Cristobal and offering his thoughts on it. Cheers!

The 2005 Conde San Cristobal is the same blend as the 2004 and received the same oak treatment. It is a bit less fragrant and more marked by oak. On the palate it is more backward and structured, needing at least 3-5 years to show its best stuff. Aside from that, it has a similar flavor profile and a long, pure finish. Drink it through 2025.
