Wine Review: This very dark purple wine was our favorite from a flight of Ribera del Duero Tempranillos. It opens with an attractive mild boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a savory black raspberry with notes of mild old oak and black cherry. The finish is very dry and its substantially building tannins sail on and on. This very tasty wine would be a wonderful choice with a thick cut of prime rib or beef stew. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A beautiful deep red cherry color. Intense and very complex. Initially, ripe black fruit appears (blackberries, prunes, etc) that evolve into red fruit with touches akin to balsamic and fragrant herbs. As it evolves, very subtle shades of toast begin to emerge with hints of cocoa and licorice. As it enters the mouth it is clearly a very pleasant, powerful and fleshy wine with good structure. It has a very velvety, smooth mouth feel to it, as ripe black fruits begin to reveal themselves with notes of cocoa and licorice with an underlying subtle veil of toasty smokiness. Ripe fruit flavor dominates the oak. This is a complex wine that has a very long finish.
