This Spanish gem shows its terroir at first contact. This is a beautiful central north Spain Ribera del Duero; Crianza style wine features deep ruby red colour, shows full bodied and robust with 14.0% ABV and features 2 varietals (90% tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon). The mouthfeel is dry and rich, aromatic features of leather, dark ripe cherry, a hint of aged cedar, prominent ripe plum, blackberry, hint of vanilla and baking spice and same on the palate. This wine is 10 years old and easily has another decade to go. Recommend enjoying between 2015-2025. Wonderful with robust and rich Mediterranean dishes with beef, pork, lamb and with vegan vegetarian dishes featuring Spanish spices. — 8 years ago
