Emilio Moro Finca Resalso Ribera del Duero 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Fresh raspberry, violet, and some clove on the nose

Full bodied

Puckering tannins with wild dark berries, violets, and cocoa on the finish


Here's a wine that has good depth and density, but is a bit too savory and mouth-puckering. Maybe it will flesh out given some time, but it's not coming together right now.

Made from Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), this wine is from Ribera del Duero in Spain which is a region that can produce some rustic and charming wines. I paid $13 for the bottle, but you'd do better to grab something else.
