Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine from Ribera del Duero opens with pretty floral bouquet with a hint of black currant. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry and vanilla oak blend with notes of cinnamon and hints of sarsaparilla towards the very end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for an extended period of time. This Tempranillo would be perfect with duck confit. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Selected lots from the more steeply inclined and chalk parcels. Malolactic fermentation and 12 to 18 months aging in barriques of primarily French oak. Deep robe and structure are highlighted by pronounced minerality on the nose and a focused, saturated and persistent finish.

Organic status: not organic
