This is the entry level wine from this producer 30 year old vines has some toasty oak spice pencil lead with good structure on the tongue with a nice amount of spice plush velvety texture. Finish 40+ excellent

Dark purple. Slightly reductive, savory, plummy fruit. Just enough oak to add some complexity and structure. Disclaimer: I import this.

Rich even for Ribera, but also just slightly muddy. I think this might see lees stirring, which is unusual for red but has given this character to others reds I've tasted. .

Deep purple/ruby. Aromas of plums, dark fruits, a hint of baking spice. Finely wrought, firmly tannic, though smoothly textured. Fresh acids. Great as a foil to cheese. Feels like it needs air to bloom.

Not sure I get the ratings. 13 bucks and was just as good day 2. One of the best QPR's I've had on a wine. Big dark strawberry, big wine. Reminds me of Clio which costs 5 times as much.
