Winemaker's Notes

Similar to an excellent Bourgogne Rouge or Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux, a joven Ribera has a fresh fruit personality that is at once simple and irresistibly charming. This wine’s character is forward, easy drinking and very easy to pair with both red and white meats, though due the inherent spicy sweetness of Tempranillo, it will fare best with lamb, pork and veal. Grilled steak or chicken salads work well, as well as empanadas.

Critical Acclaim

"Shaped by acidity that seems to surround it in light, this wine stands out for its bright red fruit flavor and a tannic structure that can stand next to powerful foods, like curried lamb."
