Red Ribera del Duero, 100% Tempranillo
• Color: Cherry red, clean, bright with indigo details on the edge. High, tannic layer of good coloration, perhaps excessive for aging, essential component for aging wine.
• In the nose: very intense wine character. Balance between toasted and spicy touches, as well as the caramel and black fruit background (blackberry, plum). Memories of cinnamon, vanilla, coconut, balsam.
• In the mouth: Fruit forward, blackberry, black currant and plum tones return; the white spice persists in the mouth and the sweet touches of the barrel, enveloping, intense in the middle of the mouth, without blunt, perhaps alcoholic. Balanced and careful quality.
