2019 Milsetentayseis Ribera del Duero Tinto - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"Like the rosé, I also found better balance and more integrated oak in the second vintage of the red, the 2019 Tinto, where they used larger barrels, 300- 400- and 600-liter, and the oak is neatly folded into the wine. Despite being a warmer year, the wine has less alcohol than the 2018. The wine remains creamy and with a luxurious palate of ripe fruit and spicy oak flavors but with more balance. The tannins are fine, and the mouthfeel is dry and serious, a return to the Ribera from the early 1990s. 27,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021."
