"The youngest of the released wines I tasted is a red—the 2016 Pícaro del Águila Tinto. It is from what they consider to be one of the best and freshest vintages in recent times. This is produced with the vines from the warmer parts of La Aguilera, a cold place to start with (and in a cooler year). The old vines are planted with a mix that is dominated by Tempranillo but also contains some 5% other grapes. All the grapes are picked and fermented together with full clusters and natural yeasts in concrete and stainless steel vats. It matured in oak barrels for 13 months. This is fragrant, expressive, open, aromatic and really attractive. The palate is really balanced, with great freshness, fine tannins and a very pleasant mouthfeel—supple, balanced and with great depth. This is the best version of this bottling so far, and it seems like 2016 could be a great overall vintage, based on some other wines I sampled from cask (many of them have an extended élevage). 21,550 bottles and 624 magnums were filled unfiltered and unfined in November 2017."

Dominio del Águila went straight to the top quality of Ribera del Duero, and their wines improve each year. The 2013 Reserva is a strong candidate for the wine of the vintage in Ribera del Duero, if it wasn't for a new bottling they are going to release... the new Canta la Perdiz.

In a very quick amount of time, Dominio del Aguila has emerged to establish itself as one of the top producers in Ribera del Duero. This 2013 is a fantastic example of the style here, which comes from not only old vine Tempranillo but also some heirloom Bobal and Garnacha. Nearly three years of ageing in barrel, along with a large portion of stem inclusion, also helps to define the style at Dominio de Aguila.
