This jóven sees only stainless steel prior to bottling, so you can taste all the juicy Tempranillo fruit without any of the cluttering oak. Complex, briary spice notes on the finish accent the bright cherry and red berry flavors. It’s full without being jammy or heavy, so you can pair it with burgers or sip it on its own.
Earthy dark-berry aromas come with moderate spice. It feels fresh and shows solid grip on the palate, along with notes of plum, blackberry, vanilla, dill and tobacco. Short and dry on the finish, it has a minty accent.
For an inexpensive wine, this offers plenty of wood spice, vanilla, char and toast on the nose. The palate smacks hard with drawing tannins, while flavors of medicinal plum and raspberry carry a charred aftertaste. Good as a whole, with oak dominating the finish.
Big and sweet, with ripe berry aromas, candy and leather on the nose. This wine is a classic fruity joven; it’s bulky and easygoing, with black cherry, raspberry and chocolate. If you aren’t looking for miracles, this is fine within the young Ribera del Duero category.
