WTN: Bodegas Los Astrales, Astrales, Ribera del Duero, 2005

Aviram, Hi....

Following is my tasting note for the wine in question.

Best
Rogov

Bodegas Los Astrales, Astrales, Ribera del Duero, 2005: Modern Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero at its best and almost as good as the exquisite 2004 release. Dark ruby towards garnet, a rich, well-balanced wine with wood, still firm tannins and fruit coming together nicely on both nose and palate. Opens with black cherries and smoke, those yielding to wild berries, minerals and freshly picked sweet herbs, and finally on the long finish hints of mocha. Concentrated but elegant, approachable now but best 2009-2017. Score 94. (Tasted 23 Mar 2008)
