Wine & SpiritsFull ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of currant, espresso, celery, exotic coconut and earthy, dusty spices (coriander seed, cumin). Supple and flavorful, with notes of currant, meat, minerals, licorice and fresh herbs. This estatersquo;s wine often reminds me of Cheval Blanc in the early going, and this release is no exception. But here the 2001 vintage has brought a bit more flesh than usual. Persistent, lifted finish. Very interesting juice-and, as always, not your typical Ribera del Duero wine.
