Due to 2009 being a warm vintage, this is earthy, ripe and bold, with creamy berry and chocolate aromas. The palate is more crisp and bumpy, with acidity offering teeth and bite. Flavors of raspberry, cassis and cocoa are authentic for Ribera del Duero but a little rough and scratchy. Drink through 2018.
