This Spanish dancer is all graceful curves and power moves with gently sweet blackberry and hints of black pepper and smoke. Broad and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the middle, youthful tannins lend grip to a long, spicy finish. Tempranillo’s ripe fruit naturally turns powerful and robust in Ribera del Duero, giving this wine the heft to meet rare beef and come away on top.

Vinous

Inky ruby. Oak-spiced cherry-vanilla and dark berry scents and hints of coconut and cracked pepper. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering black currant, cherry preserve and bitter chocolate flavors and a touch of licorice. Youthfully chewy tannins lend grip to a long, spicy finish that leaves a sweet dark fruit preserve note behind. Raised in a combination of 85% French and 15% American oak.
