Val Sotillo 1995 Gran Reserva (Ribera del Duero)

The dark purple color suggests a younger wine, but one sniff and you know it spent a lot of time in oak. Toast and cedar aromas predominate, but underneath them lies black-cherry fruit and a firm iron-mineral tang. Long, dry finish. Give it 3–5 years for the oak to integrate before drinking it over the next 10. Joe Czerwinski
