Fragrant black licorice, black currant, and some cream on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Finely textured and juicy finish of dark berries accented by dark chocolate
There are pure flavors in this wine that are intense and extracted. The dark berries, currants, and black licorice present a modern style and one that showcases the potential intensity of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape. From the Ribera del Duero region of Spain, this wine is produced from a highly acclaimed winemaker and retails for $45 or so. It compliments grilled or roasted meat nicely. Raise a glass!
