Fascinating deep, dark cherry red color. Intense, concentrated aromas of black fruit (blueberry jam), revealing notes of ripe figs and an exquisite smoky, mineral (graphite) streak. Velvety and flavorful on the palate with noble, fine-grained tannins. Oak aging endows the wine with fine notes of spices (bitter cocoa) and toast (roasted coffee). DO Ribera del Duero Ribera del Duero is located in the Meseta Central or central plateau of the Iberian Peninsula, where the provinces of Soria, Burgos, Segovia, and Valladolid converge. It is home to a 115 km by 35 km strip of vineyard that stretches along the Duero river basin. It is one of the highest vineyards in the northern hemisphere, a high-altitude, complex land whose harsh climate produces exceptionally high-quality grapes.
