Bodegas Alejandro Fernández Pesquera 1991 Ribera Del Douro wine review by (PB)
Medium garnet hue with a slight stink and nice cream and cherry-berry bouquet.
Palate--Complex mature wine with cinnamon, herbs and anise; a tasty wine.
This was the third wine (NW) served me up blind. I put it at a wine of upwards of 15 years...so I was of by 5--can't win them all.
The Ribera Del Douro is dedicated to the Tempranillo grape and this is a fine example of how well they can mature and how wonderfully complex they can present. (NW) thought he paid around $38--another treat and we raised a glass or two!
