2012 Avaniel Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo

avanielA quick Google search tells me grapes are sourced from young Tempranillo vines between six and ten years of age. Simple, fruit driven mode of wine. Imported by Beaune & Beyond.

Concentrated black and purple berry fruits with hints of dried cranberry and cola. Medium-bodied, clean and brightly lit with acid. Grainy tannin shapes proceedings towards the finish. Smashable and fun. 89
