Bodegas Epifanio Rivera Ribera del Duero 2008

Member Review by noshooz:

First, this wine is mistagged as being from Uruguay, it's actually from the Ribera del Duero DOC of SPAIN. There was a strong cedar/juniper-like nose upon opening, which faded a lot after a couple of hours of decanting. There is nice fruitiness to the wine with a nice balance of tannins on the finish. It really does need time to breathe before drinking. 85 points.

Bodegas Epifanio Rivera:
Bodegas Epifanio Rivera, established by the Rivera-Aparicio family, is connected to the most deep-rooted wine growing tradition in Pesquera de Duero. We have always been closely tied to the vine. Proof of that is our more than 80-year old vineyards, our ancient underground cellar dated from the 16th Century, and the winepress known as “La cocedera”, which has been in use in the same way as it was in the 19th Century, producing family wine until this day.
