Finca Villacreces Nebro Ribera del Duero 2016 750ml
93 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 'quintessential' from Finca Villacreces, a wine that started life in an exceptional parcel set among pine, olive and juniper trees, in the Golden Mile hugging the River Duero, with vines over 80 years old, and produced from small clusters with tiny berries. A little gem, seductive, richly textured, and flavored. A wine that won't disappoint from beginning to end of a meal, offering plenty to discover with every mouthful."
Tasting notes: Glass-coating opaque purple with a flamboyant bouquet of mocha, coffee, spice box, floral note, and wild blackberry. On the palate, the wine is packed with layer upon layer of spicy black fruits, superb length, and well-concealed tannins. It has a soft toasted aftertaste.
