Finca Villacreces Pruno Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$19.99

One of the best red buys from Spain we've found this year - hurry! 91 Points Robert Parker:  "Always a good value in Ribera and cropped from a fresher year, the 2016 Pruno has notes of licorice, dark berries and even some fresher red fruit. It has abundant, fine-grained tannins that require powerful food. It was bottled in November 2017."

Enjoyable Tempranillo and cab blend. Great with basque tapas. Opened up well over and hour but could have used a decant. More subtle fruit medium to full bodied and a little earthy

Terrific but too young, loved it anyway. Really acidic, not so much tannic but needs time to mature for full potential. Today, still very nice, full bodied, lots of flavor, hard not to like but flavors are a bit difficult to tease out, I don’t get Pruno but dark fruit. It’s tangy, good with food.

Rounded fruit, little spicy, bit green, just sitting on the edge of being juicy, but stops just shy.

Prune highlights. Coffee vanilla from the wood. Reasonably tannic

Just tried the 2016 and it is too young. Has a tobacco, earthy flavor with a hint of cinnamon and spice.

Enjoyed with Madrina Nini in La Parguera during our 18/19 visit to PR. Strong tannins, medium body.

I have to fight the tan-dons, ruff even with air.
