One of the top wines from the Cepa 21 project, Ribera del Duero Spain.
This full bodied Tempranillo sees 18 months in French oak barrels.
The nose is eminently balsamic, with smoky bacon and roasted notes, hints of peat and graphite intermixed with dark berries.
A modern Ribera, ripe, and nicely oaked with a full-bodied palate where there is good balance between tannins and alcohol, keeping enough freshness to see it age well for another 10+ years.
