This 100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero is drinking well already. It is definitely intended for early drinking, and made with North American tastes in mind. The six months in French and American oak have definitely left their mark, as there is ample mocha and vanilla character. The nose also shows sweet, jammy blackberry and dark plum, black olive, anise, and smoke. The plush, full-ish palate is similar, but with the fruit more toward dark cherry. The tannins are medium-high, and the acidity medium. Medium finish with dark cherry and cocoa. Pair with barbecued burgers or pork chops.
