Aromas and flavors of dark fruits, sweet spices and redfruit are touched by hints of nutmeg and red pepper. Fresh acidity and juicy tannins provide focus and balance.
Wine Spectator 86 points - The 2010 Urban Ribera is from younger Tinta del Pais vines in Berlangas and Roa-Burgos that sees three months in French oak barrels. It has an understated bouquet of raspberry leaf and wild hedgerow with touches of briary. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp, taut tannins and a very vibrant fresh finish with juicy raspberry and cranberry notes on the aftertaste. Punchy and lively, this is brimming over with flavor at a great price. Drink now-2015.
Black cherry and plum fruit mingle with espresso and smoke flavors in this brisk, firm red. This has some richness, but remains fresh through the finish. Drink now through 2015.
|After fermentation the wine macerated for 10-14 days and was aged for three months in French (90%) and Central European oak barrels.
