Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos Senda del Oro 2017
|Region||Spain, Ribera del Duero|
|Brand||Bodegas Vizcarra Ramos|
While I was in Ribera del Duero, the young 2017 Senda Del Oro was one of the few wines I tasted from that low-yielding year. After terrible frosts, the remaining grapes produced a juicy and concentrated red that is full of licorice and blackberries and has a round, lush palate. Very pleasant, among the best in its class. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2018.
Cherry and grapey flavors mingle with notes of chocolate and graphite in this fresh red. Light tannins and juicy acidity support the round texture. Generous. Drink now through 2025. 1,500 cases made, 500 cases imported.
