For a reasonably priced Ribera del Duero, this wine is delivering the goods and more. The nose is jammy, concentrated and sweet, with ripe berry and Graham cracker aromas. A bold, saturated palate houses flavors of blackberry, molasses and fudge, while the ripe, smooth finish tastes of brown sugar and chocolate. Drink this modern, extracted red now through 2020.
