Torres de Anguix Barrica 2003 wine review by (PB)

Some of the best wine values today are coming out of the Ribera Del Duero! This one is no exception at $7. It is really intense in color of black cherry right to the rim with heft in both hue and aromas. The Tempranillo wine is full of deep dark fruit and ripe dark berries.

In the mouth this wine is bold full of fleshy fruit that tastes more like a California creation than old world. It's still a little chunky with some maturing to do but black cherry and licorice are solid. At this price and this bold presence, it is worth hunting around for. Raise a glass to BBQ ribs and this smack down red!

My wife and I enjoyed this wine last night on Christmas eve after reading about it in the Wall Street Journal - it was fabulous!
