Balbas 2012 Alitus (Ribera del Duero)

Editors' Choice

Ribera del Duero in full and fine form is embodied in this powerful blend of 75% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from a really good vintage. Spicy oak and saucy berry aromas are earthy and intense. A fully extracted palate means tannins are palpable but they don't dominate, leaving an open stage for blackberry, cassis, toasty oak, coffee and nutmeg flavors to play out. Drink through 2034.
