O Fournier Urban Ribera del Duero 2008

Member Review by wuwumi:

This was my first Ribera del Duero. It was a bit more smokey than I had expected and not as fruity as the Rioja styles that I've enjoyed drinking. Thinking will probably need to try a few more Riberas to get used to this type of taste...Color is garnet red, opaque; smokey aroma, spice notes, and hints of dried berry fruits

Tours with an oenologist and lunch are available by appointment. There's a small charge for tasting. Read less
