A Ribera del Duero for Short-Term Aging
The 2013 Finca Torremilanos, Los Cantos, Ribera del Duero bears interesting flavors of black fruit and orange citrus. It is, however, young. The structure of very fine tannins needs time to soften and the cocoa needs to integrate. So stick a bottle or two in your cellar and see what happens! This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.
