Psi by Pingus, Tempranillo

Big Brother Pingus at $900+ per bottle, Psi Is A Steal!
LIMITED QUANTITIES
Imagine one of Spain's greatest winemakers toiling in the cellars of one of Spain's greatest estates, Pingus.
    Imagine further that for the winery's newest project, Psi, only the best fruit in the region is sourced with financial incentives placed on the quality of the yield, not the quantity. And imagine still that the winery's flagship wine, Pingus, fetches north of $900 per bottle while Psi, made by the same winemaker with the same passion, hits the market at less than 5% of that cost.
    With the desire to produce a wine "of the region," winemaker Peter Sisseck brings the true terroir of Ribera del Duero back to life in Psi by selecting only organic and bio-dynamic grapes. Because of these practices, nature dictates how this wine will taste, not modern technology.
    The result is a delicious, vibrant, terroir-driven Tempranillo that can be drunk in its youth unlike its big brother, Pingus, which is bred for decades of cellaring.
    Psi is "Pingus for the people" and boasts bold aromas of plum, tobacco, licorice, tar, hints of violet, and lovely dark chocolate notes. Dark in color but not extracted, this surprisingly "light on its feet" red shows broad flavors of blueberries, plums, and blackberries. Bright and chewy, this is a wine of purity and depth. Enjoy this epic creation now and over the next five years with your favorite meat dishes - ideally grilled lamb or pork.

$39.95 per bottle / $479.40 per case
