Aromas of perfumes and violets with blueberries follow through to a medium body with very fine tannins that run the length of the wine and show muscle and length. Linear and toned. Give this time to open and show you more. Try after 2026. Read more

Tasting Notes

Truffle-tobacco nose with sour cherry and fruit'n'nut tree aromatics, there's gamey beast-hide, and a purple storm raining minerals. Fine and radiant, with cool blue fruits - powder-tannined, nutty-inky-and-mineral in the mouth, this is Ribera del Duero from on high. Majestic wine.
