Spain: Ribera del Duero

2003 Vina Pedrosa Ribera del Duero $27
Dark and opaque in glass. The fruit in the nose and mouth are very dense -- giving the wine a very sure medium body. Black fruit and some spice (Ryan says "clove"). There's also an element of "wet bear," says mark, in nose that turns to soy or mushroom on the palatte. Medium tannins and long length. A region that continues to surprize with serious wines.
