2019 Ribera del Duero 'Diez Almendros,' Vega Clara
Wines from this area are Spanish Royalty. Diez Almendros (10 Olive Trees) has great balance and perfect subtlety. On the nose, it is spicy and intense with balsamic and toasted notes. On the palate, it is powerful, fresh, with nerve, but friendly without the fuss of something that needs 10 years in the cellar. This is a big, refined wine that just goes and goes. While it is ideal with grilled primal cuts of beef, this wine is not afraid of a good burger either.
