A beautiful Ribera-style wine with deep earth, tobacco and black fruit aromas. The palate is super dense and extracted, but balanced. Blackberry, fig and chocolate flavors lead to a finish of fine French butter, herbs, coconut and vanilla. Nothing phony here; a real contender among full-bodied, modern-style reds. Drink now–2015.
