Inky, powerful berry and lemon aromas open this very fine, earthy Ribera del Duero red. The palate feels round and wide, with toasty flavors of baked black fruits, coffee and mocha. A warm, slightly hot and spicy finish shows minty oak and chocolate flavors. Hold this structured wine another year or two, then drink through 2020.
