I don’t understand what all the fuss is about? This wine has received crazy good scores from critics and while it’s clean and expressive, the tannins are dry and the wine isn’t ready (don’t know if it ever will be) for consumption now. It says 95% #tempranillo and 5% #Albillo I think it has some Cabernet and I don’t really understand why put the albillo, it hasn’t done anything to this wine in the way of floral aromas or lightness. This wine is 15% alc. and the warming feeling on the finish is out of balance with the body and the fruit concentration of the wine #riberadelduerowine #riberadelduero
