Starts out a touch earthy and funky, but that's the way mature Ribera is supposed to be. And as this one opens up it shows a good mix of traditional sous bois and earth matched by core ripeness and balance. If you like Spanish reds with subtle fruit flavors offset by touches of dill, vanilla and herbal essence, this is for you. Imported by Freixenet USA.
