No doubt that this is a solid, broad Ribera wine with plenty of positives. The nose has coconut and vanilla aromas to go with deep plum and berry notes, and the palate is ripe and developed, with black fruit and plush tannins. It smells like it should and makes a good impression. Drink now through 2011.
