2003 Abadia Retuerta Vino de la Tierra Castilla y León Rívola

  • 2003 Abadia Retuerta Vino de la Tierra Castilla y León Rívola – Spain, Castilla y León, Sardon de Duero, Vino de la Tierra Castilla y León (6/20/2006)
    60% Tempranillo and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 months in barrel
    Dark ruby color that has a beautiful consistency reminding me of both a texture and color that would be found in a royal chamber. On the nose, strong notes of coffee, plumes and dark cherry come forth with a slight vegetable or forest aroma in the background. Very light body and structure with medium acidity. On the palate, a strong blackcurrent flavor followed by hints of vanilla and charred wood. Overall, a very nice well structured wine.
