2008 Bodegas Ribera Dehesa La Granja
Castilla y León , Spain
One hundred percent Tempranillo from the Pesquera clones planted in 1998. Deep ruby. A complex, perfumed bouquet evokes dark berries, cola, smoked meat and mint. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry-cola flavors that are firmed and lifted by juicy acidity. The smoky note repeats on the finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity and a whisper of fine-grained tannins Delicious right now.
