Balbas 2016 Ritus (Ribera del Duero)

Heavy oak steamrolls this blend of 75% Tempranillo and 25% Merlot. The nose is earthy and oozing vanilla, while aromas of black plum and currant are raisiny. This is tannic, aggressive and drying on the palate, while a woody flavor profile that includes baking spices, prune, raisin and jammy blackberry is heavily oaked through the finish.
