99 points Wine Advocate

The 2005 Pingus is the most powerful of this series (power being a major characteristic of the top 2005s in the DO). It offers up a perfume beginning to develop some complexity, terrific volume and richness on the palate, and a lengthy, pure finish. This is a great wine that should have a 40 year lifespan. Dominio de Pingus is located in the La Horra region of Ribera del Duero. Owner/winemaker, Peter Sisseck, an oenologist originally from Denmark, started the estate in 1995. (JM) (6/2010)

95 points Vinous

Ruby-red. Suave, mineral-accented raspberry and cherry-cola aromas slowly unfold to display anise, graphite, smoky bacon and roasted coffee. Deeply concentrated but improbably elegant, with lively red and dark fruit favors supported by silky tannins and braced by fresh minerality. In no way a blockbuster, this finishes with outstanding persistence and insinuating cassis and mineral qualities. Much more about finesse and balance than size or brute force. One has to lament the price. (JR) (9/2007)

18/20 points Jancis Robinson

100% Tinto Fino (70-year-old vines) and 100% new oak. Less immediately charming on the nose than the Flor de Pingus but the violet perfume emerges gradually in the glass. Structured but tannins already starting to melt. Cool and fresh and then the power of the thick chocolate tannins kicks in on the powerful finish. (JH) (1/2008)
