Plum and berry aromas are chunky and bring notes of leather and animal to the table. This offers size and density along with mildly lactic red-fruit and spice flavors. There's an outsized oak flavor and resin to deal with on the finish, but overall this captures the essence of Ribera del Duero for under $20.
