2010 was a good vintage that yielded good sugars and resulted in balanced acidity with sweet tannins. The 2010 Vina Sastre Ribera del Duero shows bright red fruit with notes of mushrooms and toast. On the palate, the wine is soft and accessible, with a pleasant fruity aftertaste.
"Saturated ruby. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of black raspberry, mocha and cola, with intense floral and mineral accents adding lift. Juicy, penetrating red and dark berry flavors show very good intensity and focus, taking on weight and gaining sweetness with air. Fine-grained tannins build on the lingering finish. Pretty impressive for an entry-level wine, but this promises to be a top vintage in the region."
