2015 Torre Albéniz Reserva Ribera del Duero
Ribera del Duero, Spain
85% Tinto Fino, 7% Garnacha and 8% Tempranillo Blanco from biodynamically-farmed vines with an average age of 100 years. 15 months of elevage in French barriques. It's sleek and polished with integrated oak, combining power and elegance.
94 points, Falstaff Magazine. "Amarena cherry, with a hint of port, but also violets, clearly floral. Some new wood. Massive body, grainy, but not rough tannins on an oily base, clearly grown on limestone, restrained on the palate, but rich and persistent on the finish." poorly translated from the original German, sorry! -Ryan
