TASTING NOTES:

  • View: garnet red colour with colour tiles. The tear of this wine is stained.
  • Nose: intense aromas have on wild fruits and spices accompanied elegant toasty and snuff.
  • Mouth: The mouth is very powerful, glycerin and enveloping, powerful and tannic with a beautiful expression. Retronasal aromas with very fine nose, but sharper.

4/5

Twinkling cherry colour. It has aromas that reminded me of white roses. It tasted like grape juice.
I decided not to pair it with any dish.
My partner loves this Ribera del Duero.

4/5

It disclosed a very nice smell of white roses. This 2007 is quite like the previous vintage.
It is important to serve at the proper temperature.

4/5

To emphasize on this  the smell of coffee. It reveals a kind of salty aftertaste.
This wine fulfilled my high expectations completely.
