This is a super balanced Ribera del Duero that shows blueberries, mulberries, bilberries, sage and eucalyptus. Subtly shaped, this trades in fresh berries, edgy tannins and forthright acidity. Bright on the medium-chewy finish. Drink now. July 2019
Dark cherry red with garnet highlights. Astounding aroma of black fruit (wild blackberries), with exquisite jammy (cherry) notes coming through, and a toasty nuance (roasted coffee). Dense and velvety on the palate, full of fruit extract, with long, flavorful and fragrant persistence that reveals elegant oak aging.
