Bodegas Ordonez Tineta Ribera Del Duero 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Wild berry notes on the bouquet
Full bodied on the palate
Tannic finish, fairly firm, with berries, plum, and charcoal accents
Rustic and firm, this one just needs some time. Set it aside for a couple years and it should help round out the sharp edges. From the Ribera del Duero region of Spain, this wine is made from 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). Expect to pay around $16.
I recommend it, but not without some patience. Raise a glass!
