Complex yet youthful. Loads of blackcurrant, cedar, spice, soy, leather, and wild berries. #winewednesday

Deep dark crimson, shiny and bright. Full bodied. Muddled black fruit nose with graphite a hint of prune, and barnyard and beets. Not a lot of this transfers to the palate. Mainly blackberry. Medium acidity,medium plus tannins. Grippy firm, and average finish. No decant but poured through a Vinturi-- was thirsty.

92+ points

I can't imagine Ribera being better. A little soy and umami with luscious fruit, big and integrated tannins, and a finish that is long and lovely. Spectacular.

Big and complex, with aromas of earth & leather. Gripping tannins and balanced fruits
