Castilla y León, Ribera del Duero, Spain

Dark garnet, opaque color. Aromas of pine, cassis, and blackberry with a little green tea. Pretty ripe on the palate, but remains fairly traditional. Shows some dried herb and blackberry flavors and finishes well enough. Not mind blowing, but pretty good for the money. Seems like it’s ready to drink now, but it will hold for a few years, although I doubt it’ll get any better…no reason to wait.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
