Tempranillo more

No real note, just a friday evening at home. This already has all I want from a wine: depth, juicyness, firm roundness, beautifull nose. Young still; but VERY entertaining. Will (try to) keep the other bottles for 1-10 more years

still jong but showing good promise. The nose has old wood, pepper, rose hip and stale (light). Tastes like zweet wood, dark fruit, tone of oregeno, medium long ans slightly dry finish. Young wine, should adge well for another 10 years at least

2010 Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos Ribera del Duero Roble

Tinto Fino, Tempranillo more

- Brick color and aromas of black pepper and black currant. It's balanced and has flavours of vanilla, walnut, mushroom and yoghurt with a full body. Oily texture with a long finish - Still young but promising. Beautiful nose, 'in your face' style, dark fruit, earthy, unfortunately my last bottle.

- Garnet color with medium forming legs and aromas of black pepper, black currant, blackberry, banana and raisin. It's balanced and has flavours of vanilla and raisin with a full body. Leathery texture with a long finish - Dark fruit in the nose, pepper, tobacco, beautifully integrated wood, taste is rounded, warm, dark fuit, long pleasant finish. Can be enjoyed now for sure, but will develop.
