Finca Villacreces Pruno 2019

Ribera del Duero, Castilla-Leon, SpainA 90/10 blend of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon, this has a lovely balance between heady, ripe fruit, led by macerated Damson plums and blueberries that fall just shy of jammy, along with compelling savoury notes of licorice, cedar, dried herbs, and a distinct stony minerality. There's a certain rusticity here, and that's felt on the tannins as well, while at the same time being a charmingly authentic expression of Ribera del Duero. Enjoy now if you want to retain the fruit, or cellar for 3-4 years to help the tannins soften. Either way, it offers solid value.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
