Wine Review: This pitch black colored Tempranillo from Ribera is unique. It opens with a blueberry and black cherry like bouquet with a hint of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a unique blueberry and cedar blend with notes black licorice. I also detect hints of minerality and black cherry as well. The finish is very dry and its dusty tannins are quite sticky and build up and last for a very long time. This wine needs fat and decanting in the short run. I would pair it with a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense Tempranillo character is apparent in a concentrated, deeply colored red wine. Saturated red fruit grips the palate, leaving a long and sweet finish that promises excellent development in the bottle. Aged 15 months in barrique.
