Sourced from three of the best vineyards in the Ribera del Duero region, this wine is a true example of contemporary Ribera area wines, made without compromise. Cropped from a drier vintage for the year 2019 the grapes as a result were powerful and concentrated, as a result maceration was reduced by 11 days and concrete was introduced to reduce time in oak. 

As a result the 2019 vintage is described as a powerful, concentrated, juicy vintage. Pure and aromatic this wine is full bodied with plenty of chocolate, vanilla, coffee-bean and juicy berry undertones. Round long tannis lead to a complexity of smoked wood and tar undertones. 

Ripe, tarry plums and black cherries with violets, rocks, coffee and graphite. Refined notes of balsamic fruit and cocoa powder, too. Full-bodied and juicy with an iron fist of tannins, yet at the same time so velvety and polished. Very long, focused finish, showing lots of finesse and layers. Drinkable now, but better after 2025. - 95 Points James Suckling
