Passion for Spanish wine



Valbuena 5º Año 2013 Tinto

Vega Sicilia, Ribera del Duero

Complex, fine nose with dairy, nutty notes, perfectly seasoned fruit and plenty of minty aromas. A medium-bodied red with lovely texture. I could spot the Cabernet in this vintage adding extra freshness. It feels less consistent in the mid-palate than on previous vintages but it shows admirable balance and elegance. 17.5 points
