Aalto Ribera del Duero 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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

Summary:

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!
