Nose

Tight at the beginning, after some aeration this old-vines Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero shows creamy notes of cedar, cinnamon, clove, toast, cocoa and liquorice, underpinned by aromas of black fruit, wet earth and withered vegetables.

Palate

Meaty and smooth, this reserva of Bodega Avelino Vegas has a substantial volume and a solid structure. Fruit compote, sweet spices, tobacco, chocolate and aromatic herbs. Well-balanced, refreshing acidity, yummy tannins and long, delicate finish.

I like this Ribera. Old-style wine, powerful and fresh.

A very "masculine" wine, so to speak. And sort of old-fashioned. But that's the way I like my wine. Deep, strong and concentrated.
