($55) Deep ruby. Smoky red berry aromas offer striking precision and lift; floral and mineral qualities appear with air, adding a seductive character. Racy and bright in the mouth, displaying an impressive array of concentrated red fruit flavors, with gentle tannins contributing shape. Finishes with impressive cut and persistence. Very suave stuff.

Cask sample. Cool with lots of mulberries, but fresh too. Very open, rich and a real step up from previous vintages of this regular bottling. Complete and glossy. Very long and satisfying. Production 170,000 bottles.

Excellent, classical terroir expression of a good Ribera del Duero. A beauty, earthy, cedary, ripe fruit, leathery in where it combines finnese, power, balance in great structure. Is maturing in impressive way, should hit the stride within 12-18 months and should stay by 2-5 yrs after that
