Rather baked and heavy, with chunky black fruit and chocolate on the nose. First in line on the palate is raisin and prune, while in back of that there's vanilla, dill and brown sugar. With grating tannins and excess weight, this one has balance issues while still offering some good looks at Ribera del Duero. Imported by Admiral Imports.
