Year's Best Ribera del Duero, Wine & Spirits
"A plush texture carries bright flavors of cherry, fresh herb, licorice and smoke in this lively red. Orange peel acidity and light, firm tannins keep this focused. Exuberant." - Wine Spectator
"(fermented in concrete and oak vats, followed by a year of aging in French oak barrels, half of them new) Opaque ruby. Aromas of dark berries, candied flowers, Asian spices and vanilla on the perfumed nose. Broad and seamless in the mouth, offering sweet blueberry and spicecake flavors that tighten up slowly and become more lively on the back half. Finishes very long and smooth, displaying strong persistence, rounded tannins and lingering spiciness." - Vinous
"The 2014 Parada de Atauta was also quite impressive, like all the 2014s I tasted from Dominio de Atauta. It had the oak perfectly folded into the fruit and the palate revealed very fine tannins and a supple finish. Soft, polished and sleek." - Wine Advocate
Inky purple color. It is an intense fragrant wine, displays red and black berries aromas, hints of violets, black pepper and mocha. On the palate, ripe and delicious. It has great freshness and balance with a velvety texture.
