From the website:  http://www.thespanishacquisition.com
Up in the Northern hill-slopes rising out of the Duero valley, the Aragon family have a couple of truly special patches of very gnarled old Tempranillo vines, 60 and 80 years' age. Soil is slightly heavier and more minerally than the sandy valley floor, but heavy clay is avoided. Wines of elegance and concentration; savoury with great earthy perfumes. 
Cillar de Silos is archetypal of the modernisation of the Spanish wine scene, where great old vine material is taken out of co-op production and transformed into low crop, concentrated, fleshy, elegant modern estate wine.
Tobacco and anise add complexity to earthy dark cherry – pure Ribera del Duero fruit with a brambly boysenberry and cassis lift. Mineral and savoury, masculine but in no way big, there’s only mid-level glycerol and fine, long, very mature tannins. A wonderful vintage.
