"Mildly gritty blackberry and cassis aromas are lightly charred and a touch fiery. A fully saturated palate is at max weight, while this tastes primarily of blackberry and chocolaty oak. Considering that this is Moro's basic RDD, with some 70,000 cases bottled, it's exemplary. Drink through 2025."

"Plenty of blueberry and plum-cake character. Ripe and generous with full, but quite supple tannins for a young Ribera del Duero red. Keeps pumping out the ripe flavors on the fresh and intense finish. Drink or hold.

"I also tasted the 2016 Emilio Moro, from a cooler year with higher yields. For this label, they select grapes from vines ranging between 15 and 25 years of age, as the range here is (mostly) defined by vine age. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for one year before bottling. I found it fresher than the 2015, and it kept its juicy and fruit-driven profile. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannins. It would be phenomenal with a little more acidity. 850,000 bottles produced. It was bottled from April 2018."

"Cinnamon and sassafras notes frame cherry and pomegranate flavors in this spicy red. Light tannins and tangerine acidity keep this focused. Juicy and fresh. Drink now through 2024. 70,000 cases made. –TM"
Emilio Moro is the flagship bottling from the Bodega. It is produced from 100% Tinto Fino from vines ranging from 15-25 years of age. It undergoes a 28-day skin maceration followed by 12 months of aging in French and American barrels. This is a classic example of Ribera del Duero and an excellent value.
The Moro family has been farming the same vineyards in the Ribera del Duero since 1932, the birth year of Emilio Moro (the patriarch) as well as the year in which the Finca Resalso vineyard was planted. For two generations, the grapes were sold on the bulk market. In 1988, current proprietor José Moro Espinosa invested the family’s entire savings into winery equipment and Bodegas Emilio Moro was born. The bodega joined the D.O. Ribera del Duero in 1989 and quickly established itself as one of the region’s leading producers of top quality wines. The winery is located at the top of a bend in the Duero River in the town of Pesquera del Duero, just to the Northwest of Peñafiel.
Yup, I'd drink this again! - Mid-body, dry-wise. Guests brought a ham with them, this went just fine, so there's likely not much this would not go with. I'd buy this again. Tasty.
