Expected a fuller body and more fruity taste. Much lighter than expected. Will not buy again. I am becoming suspicious that I don't really like the Tempranillo grape wines. Will continue looking for the perfect Ribera del Duero wine.
Although some notes complain about tannins and acid, to me it is the closed down nature of the fruit. Although the wine does have nice clean flavor and polish. Not a bad buy at $12, but I don't see it improving. On the other hand if you like a more austere style of wine, this is a deal.
Soft, plummy, smooth, fruit-driven and to my taste somewhat boring. The lack of structure is a subjective flaw, but if you like the modern style RDD tempranillos these high 80's scores are probably well deserved. Fairly priced.
