Monster of a wine, stunning depth & extraction / concentration of flavors so impressive: no signs of age - this has at least 20 yrs ahead, tons of ripe almost stewed dark fruit (black profiled blackberry & prune, black cherry) w/rich soil, dusty edges, evolved over time w/some hi-toned expression, scorched Earth, caramel, coffee made appearances... endless length w/sturdy structure yet caressing tannins. I’ve had this wine many times and it never disappoints. — 10 days ago
What a way to start the week!!
Not showing any age at all! Spanish powerhouse. Beautiful nose with loads of sweets: chocolate, cola, cinnamon, almondpaste, candied cherries. Super smooth and silky mouthfeeling. In the mouth it adds some layer over the sweets which makes it more then simple sweet wine. Well balanced, withholding some acidity and well dosed bitters. Very good wine. — a day ago
Had a ‘13 in the cellar, aged very well for an inexpensive wine. Deep Ruby with dark edges. Aromas of berry fruit, complex spice, a touch earthy. On the palate, ripe Cherry and blackberry fruits with sweet and peppery spice. Nice approachable tannins that opened up quickly. Good balance and good length. Very Nice. — a month ago
Great Ribera Del Duoro!! I haven’t had a wine with such a distinct blackberry note on the palate. Really well-balanced example of a Ribera Tempranillo. (CHF 23) — 3 hours ago
Really, really nice Ribera Del Duoro. Deep fruit with balanced, not over-powering oak. A bit pricey (CHF 30), but a nice treat. — 2 days ago
