Reviews and Ratings

Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A blend of 90% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

A very stylish Ribera del Duero. Deep ruby in colour, the nose is intense and moderately complex featuring ripe black cherry, plum, cassis and blackberry fruit, underscored by licorice spice, meaty nuances and hints of citrus. The palate shows lovely balance, with fresh acidity nicely ofsetting the vibrant black fruit core. This is a dense, structured, full-bodied red with muscular tannins that need time in cellar (or pairing with red meat) to soften. The oak is beautifully managed - 12 months in 2-year old French oak barrels - acting more to frame the palate than add flavour. Great value for the price!
Very firm tannins on this Spanish 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon red wine blend from the Ribero del Duero region. Needs cellar time and then decant 2 hours prior to serving with a rare steak. Notes of cassis and tart blackberry with toasty oak. - Community Wine Reviews
