Light, drinks like a pinot. Medium tannins, low sugar, low alcohol. Ok drink for $20 from Costco

Really nice Spanish blend from the Ribera del Duero region of Spain. 80/20 Tempranillo/Cab Sauv. Earthy and leathery organics on the nose with nice fruit on the pallet. Well constructed wine. Could age a bit longer.

Lots of fruit and leather, not too dry. Great wine, but could probably be laid down a little longer.

Glad I have another bottle. This pup can go another five years at least. So tight when opened that I thought I'd made a mistake. 30 minutes of air and this opened into red fruits, leather and oak. Drinking well now but will improve with some age.

Blackberry compote, blueberry jam, cassis, grape popsicle, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, iron, leather. Rounded acidity/minimal narrow velvet tannin balance, full bodied, silky texture, spicy-slightly earthy finish. Great texture, well integrated oak influence, paired perfectly with lamb.
