2015 Arzuaga Ribera del Duero Reserva Especial - 94 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Saturated maroon. Expansive spice- and smoke-accented dark berry, cherry cola, candied flowers and pipe tobacco on the highly perfumed nose. Sweet and gently chewy on the palate, offering intense black currant, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors and building vanilla and mocha flourishes. Smooth, even tannins add structure and gentle grip to a long, dark-fruit-driven finish, which leaves smoke, vanilla and spice notes behind. - Josh Raynolds"

2017 Arzuaga Ribera del Duero Reserva Especial - 96 PTS - Cellar Selection - WE

wine enthusiast 96 pts"This wine is garnet-­ruby colored in the glass, with a pale violet-colored meniscus. In the bouquet there are aromas of red plum, new car leather and ripe cherry, with flavors of dried herbs, cedar, tobacco leaf, and ripe red and black fruits. The tannins are silky, the mouthfeel is round and generous, and the finish goes on for days. Drink through 2042. - Mike DeSimone"
