Rubiejo makes one of the best, most consistent jovens in all of Spain, let alone Ribera del Duero. The 2006 is typically deep and earthy, with five months worth of hickory and leather poking through. The flavors run toward blackberry and chocolate, while some vanilla comes in late. Chewy and big, with mass appeal.
