Vizcarra Ribera del Duero Senda del Oro 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark, focused and complex on the nose with aromas of tart plum and black raspberry joined by nuanced violet, macerated herb, and earthy licorice aromas. Youthfully tense in the mouth, this sits a bit low on the tongue, showing restrained power with a chewy mouthful of earthy dark plum skin, black cherry and mineral flavors. Almost a bit salty on the tongue, this is a muscular yet well balanced style with real finesse emerging on the backend. The flavors are well delicated here and the tannins very well managed, joining juicy, bright acids on the long finish where this really shines. I might want a little more nuance on the palate but this has fresh, somewhat complex fruit and a gorgeous texture that is both fresh and firm without being rustic. This could use a year or two in bottle before drinking, and then should be great for another 5 or so years. 90pts
