    Region: Spain

    Varietal: Other Red Blends

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 90192

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Shows a deep red claret colour with violet hue towards the rim. Powerful nose with ripe red fruit, and hint of violets and minerals. Fresh, elegant and clean, delicious with plenty of varietal flavors on the palate. Sweet tannins and refreshing but integrated acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    "This purple-colored effort exhibits an attractive bouquet of minerals, earth, black cherry and raspberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied wine with concentrated, ripe fruit, excellent depth, and a pure finish."

    I left it in a decanter for about an hour and a half before a poured a glass and fell in love with it from the first sip! Bone dry and lots of soft tannins and minerals. Medium bodied but drinks like a full-bodied wine. Highly recommend it to those who are looking for something different..you won't be dissapointed

    This wine is definitely NOT a Ribera del Duero, it is a wine from the BIERZO region!!!! Could you please correct this mistake?!

    First things first: This wine is NOT a Ribera del Duero. It is its own D.O. - El Bierzo - with its own grape, Mencia, in Castile-Leon. It is NOT a Ribera del Duero, which typically uses Tempranillo. It opens weak and smells of minerals (but don't be afraid), so need to wait 10 minutes or so; it is also better with food (I ate it with light pasta with seafood). Then, BAM, great fruit (black cherry and, I think, cranberry) but not cloying sweet (my bugaboo), acid is well balanced, medium bodied, and the mineral really grows on you. Tannic acids seems subdued but that's ok. I had a hard time putting the bottle away. I would buy this again.
