Lovely #riberadelduerowine just lovely. Aging in incredible style. Supple tannins, delicate texture and perfectly balanced.

Hot. And surprisingly green. Opened up but was persistent on the finish (a bit of a burn - heat).

Youthful inky colour. Pure and linear nose, mainly dark cherry. Still very primary. Expansive palate, very concentrated but smooth and balanced. Drinking very well but expecting this to hold and age gracefully for another decade.

Smoked meat, black cherries and currants. Full bodied, fresh and pure. Tasty stuff.

Decanted for 30 mins. Nice depth and not over-powering with tannins. Had with a chilli/cheddar at a cheese&wine party. Would buy again.

Very good Ribera del Duero Reserva. Spicy dried berry fruits and a dusty finish. Drinking well now, but will probably decline in another year or two.
