Region Spain, Ribera del Duero
Brand Cepa 21
Colors of dark cherry with a high concentration. In the nose the wine shows the characteristics of the vintage well, with ripe red fruits, paired with subtle oak and balsamic notes. Powerful in the mouth with well structured tannins and full bodied. The finish is long and lingers on for a good amount of time.

Firm and balanced, this red has a sleek texture, with restrained but harmonious flavors of black cherry, licorice, mineral and smoke. Well-integrated tannins impart backbone, while balsamic acidity keeps this fresh. Drink now through 2025. 16,666 cases made.

The eponymous 2015 Cepa 21 is pure Tempranillo that aged in French barriques for one year before bottling. It has a smoky and spicy nose with a commercial profile and notes of black fruit, which are quite ripe. The palate has lowish acidity and plenty of tannins, reflecting a warm and ripe year. It could do with a little more freshness, even though this is the most drinkable of the reds. 420,000 bottles produced, more than double the previous year. It's bottled in nine different lots; the one I tasted is from June 2017.
