Alonso del Yerro 2006 Ribera del Duero

Having not much liked the 2004s from Alonso del Yerro, the 2006s seem better. This wine has some Parmesano cheese and leather on the nose, but also charcoal and black fruit. The palate is thick and chewy, and totally modern. It tastes of leather and baked black fruit, while the finish is sort of flat and lacks intensity. Expect a big, less-than-grabby wine that should be drunk now through 2010. Michael Schachner
