Classic in many ways, this wine shows maturity and much of what Ribera del Duero is known for. It offers a nice balance between Old World leather and tomato notes and more modern plum, meat and oak characteristics. It has good tannins and the right amount of vanilla. Drink now or over the next year or two.
