Blackberry, vanilla, coffee and leather aromas form a classic Ribera opening. The palate feels good and shows depth and body in front of roasted berry, spice and herbal flavors. On the finish, the texture is very good and the mix of persevering black-fruit flavors and toastiness is on the money. Drink through 2017.
