Deep cherry red with a ruby rim. Very aromatic, it displays aromas of blackberries and red berries over a background of mocha, toffee, cedar, licorice and toasted notes. Potent and harmonious on the palate, with highly marked sweet tannins. Wide and elegant aftertaste that will improve after storage in the bottle. A classic example of a great wine from Ribera del Duero. It is an amiable companion to main courses made with crispy textured meat, spicy stews and very mature, dry, smoked, strong flavored cheeses.

Wine SpectatorDense yet racy, this red delivers rich flavors of cherry, licorice and mineral that are deep yet fresh, with firm, well-integrated tannins and balsamic-scented acidity. Harmonious and lively. Drink now through 2021. 12,500 cases made.
