A bit chewy, but seeing as its fluid and has these cherries and tar vibe it’s like drinking good Nebbiolo for less. Fun. — 10 days ago

Vinos Finos Ribera Duero Red Blend 2017

It’s official. We’ve taken the leap and registered for WSET Diploma (Level 4)! 😆 We’re excited for, and daunted by, the steep learning journey that lies ahead over the next 2-3 years…

What better way to mark the beginning of this journey than to sip on some lovely Ribera del Duero wine and work through a formal note using the systematic approach to tasting (SAT) wine? 🍷🍷

This wine is made from the ‘Tinta del Pais’ variety aka ‘Tinto Fino’ aka ‘Tempranillo.’ It hails from Ribera del Duero DO within the Duero Valley of Spain. 🇪🇸 Its topography is unique in that it’s largely cut off from maritime influences by surrounding mountains and is situated on the highest part of a plateau called the Meseta Central, over 2,780 feet above sea level. ⛰ ⛰

👁 This wine is deep ruby with notable tearing and extraction.

👃 On the nose this wine has a medium intensity of youthful aromas. Aromas include primary notes of ripe black cherry, black currant, blueberry, pomegranate, violet, anise, black licorice, and secondary notes of cedar, pencil shavings, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, and clove.

👄 On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium(+) body, high alcohol, medium(+) tannins, and medium intensity of flavors. Flavors include tart blackberry, black cherry, and black currant, dark chocolate, toast, cedar, nutmeg, and clove. The finish is medium.

This is a very good wine that is balanced in its core structure, offers aromatic and flavor complexity across primary and secondary categories, and has solid intensity and concentration of vibrant fruit. 💕 It may be consumed now (especially after decanting), but has potential for further aging.

Protos ’27, Ribera del Duero, Tinta del Pais, Vintage 2017, ABV 14.5%. Named in honor of the 11 vine growers who established Protos in 1927.

@Mark Detrick Lucky you!!! 🇪🇸 You should pick up a bottle and let us know your thoughts! I’ll bet it’s even better prior to crossing the Atlantic.

Quinta Seara D'Ordens

Reserva Douro Red Blend 2018

Delicious Portuguese red - fruit forward enough for Raj yet heavy enough with tannins that coat the mouth like powder for me - the perfect combo. Plus drinking it with the guy who makes it for the BEST wine tasting afternoon in Porto - his almonds, olive oil, cheese and welcome was insane — a month ago
