A Lovely Young Spanish Wine from South River Imports


I suspected from the first sniff of my glass that I would like this wine.  This was re-confirmed on the palate until, after two days, there was nothing left in the bottle.  This is young, effusive Tempranillo which has nice energy right now.  I recommend you grab a few bottles to drink now and over the short-term.  Jenn really enjoyed drinking this bottle.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2011 Pago de Los Capellanes, Joven Roble, Ribera del Duero – $23
Imported by South River Imports.  This wine is 100% Tempranillo which was aged for five months in medium-toast French oak.  Alcohol 13.5%.  With air the nose revealed sweaty black fruit.  In the mouth were grapey flavors of tart and chewy black and red fruit.  There was good extract and lots of leaner flavors.  A hint of ripeness mixed with structure and flavors of Christmas spices and vanilla in the finish.  This mouth coating wine had some spicy spices in the aftertaste.  *** Now-2019.
