After loving their white a few weeks back (posted 14 Jan) I had to try their red 😁 Yes another gem from @gabymeetswine @vilaviniteca for €58. Young but drinking well with Mrs E’s Fillet 🥩 in peppercorn sauce with 🍟

📍 Dominio del Águila Reserva 2015

🏵 92+ points but needs more time to shine

🍇 Tempranillo, Grenache, Blanca del País & Bobal

🍷 Deep opaque blackened purple tinted ruby

👃 Sweet dark & red cherry, raspberry chocolate cake, fresh cut cedar & soft smoked soaked oak w/ purple flower, light mineral, blueberry & black berries

👄 Med++ body of creamy smooth rich dark cherry, red cherry, black berry & raspberry in gloopy cocoa, red liquorice, blueberry pie & parma violets w/ a light dry mineral tone

🎯 Med+ slight sweet & dry mineral black cherry/berry boom w/ a red fruit & blueberry chocolatey cake splat

New house fav. Big darn blueberry with chovolate . Dark ink does not overpower this Ribero del Duero with fruit from aged Vines..

Big wine. dark purple ink with hint of cherries and chocolate cake . Maybe overpowered a pasta dish but beautiful nonetheless
