Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro, Ribera del Duero Gran Reserva, Mainland Spain, Spain, 2009
Platinum: Best Ribera del Duero
95% Tinto Fino, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot
The nose is dense with a pleasing sweetness, attractively evolved with tobacco, roasted meats and black fruit. The palate develops an amazingly complex array of layered spice, ripe tannins, plenty of fruit and extremely long finish.
