Finca Villacreces, Ribera del Duero 2005

Eric Solomon and European Cellars Direct, New York NY.

Fifteen years on.

Ruby. Seductive richness of sarvisberry and chocolate; glossiness of texture and the fruit is quite polished. A grind of black pepper and faintly tart wild plum fruit skin add intrigue and complexity. The finish is spiced and persistently rich, like cloves steeped in orange zest. Now – 2025.
