A stupendous example of what the Ribera can produce. Wonderfully luscious/coffee/vanilla/mocha with harmonious balance and plenty of ripe black fruits. This is a real treat and overshadowed Pesquera reserva and tinto 2005.
Was the most popular of five Ribera reds. Wonderful food matching provided by masterchef Rob Revel-Chion, the producer of the finest paella north of the Pyrenees, laden with clams, king prawns, chicken and smokey paprika.
A fine wine indeed and many more to come on our wine tasting and buying trip to the Ribera del Duero later in May.
