Floral notes. Tastes like it was made in stainless (no oak influences). Simple

very expressive and mesmerizing nose. Vanilla and oak. Very nice and not overpowering. I am not a huge Napa fan (more Bordeaux) but I do enjoy these wines. Glad to have another

2010 Dominio de Atauta Ribera del Duero

Tempranillo more

Very primal and fruit forward wine without the necessary oak or secondary development that makes a well rounded wine. Would much prefer a Rioja. Kind of a disappointment for the price. Pass

A bit simple. Some Bordeaux characteristics, but it was a rather simple wine. Not a huge fan.

Nice wine. Not super concentrated, good acidity, a bit "full throttle" for me but not too much, and nice leather notes that add some complexity. Good value

11/27/2014 - BeyondTheMargin.net Likes this wine: 91 points

Very nice wine. Glad I have more to explore in future years. Not an extremely expressive nose but good concentration on the palate and rich oakey / leathery tones. Characteristic Bordeaux and good representative of the 2009 vintage

ACID bomb. So out of balance that it incited acid reflux by itself. Pass / do not buy

Sweet oak, red fruit, acid on the nose. Similar on the palate with medium alcohol. The sweetness of the oak is a tad different but a good one nonetheless

Drinking very nicely. No cork damage and great bottle. Nice notes of graphite and some fruit. Noticeable acidity and nice bricking on the rim. A very enjoyable bottle that I am glad I purchased.
