Protos Ribera del Duero Gran Reserva 2011
|Region||Spain, Ribera del Duero|
Wine EnthusiastFull-throttle oak, vanilla, tobacco and smoky blackberry aromas feed into a full, grippy but surprisingly fresh palate. Toasty oak, blackberry and spice flavors finish long and steady. Drink this excellent Tempranillo from a powerful vintage through 2025.
Wine SpectatorLicorice, leather and loamy earth flavors frame black cherry and plum notes in this red, which has balance and depth, firm tannins and fresh acidity providing structure and focus. Drink now through 2021.
