Rich and decadent red with so much berry, meat and spice character. Aromatic, too. Full body, layered and chewy with plenty of beautiful fruit. Intense finish. Drink now or hold.

Ripe aromas of cola nut, burnt brown sugar, cedar and blackberry feed into a giant palate with killer tannins. Flavors of blackberry, cassis and burnt toast end in a tarry pool of black-fruit flavors and monster tannins...   Ripe aromas of cola nut, burnt brown sugar, cedar and blackberry feed into a giant palate with killer tannins. Flavors of blackberry, cassis and burnt toast end in a tarry pool of black-fruit flavors and monster tannins. This is rewarding now but also punishing; hold until 2017, then drink through 2025.

The top of the range in the Cepa 21 project is the 2011 Malabrigo, pure Tempranillo from a cold, north-facing vineyard planted some 20 years ago that seems to have taken the oak better than the Cepa 21. Perhaps the cooler...   The top of the range in the Cepa 21 project is the 2011 Malabrigo, pure Tempranillo from a cold, north-facing vineyard planted some 20 years ago that seems to have taken the oak better than the Cepa 21. Perhaps the cooler vineyard, with a little less alcohol, has provided a better counterbalance to the élevage. The wine went through malo and 18 months upbringing in French oak barrels. Even though, the nose is eminently balsamic, with smoky bacon and roasted notes, hints of peat and graphite intermixed with dark berries. A modern Ribera, ripe, and nicely oaked with a full-bodied palate where there is good balance between tannins and alcohol, keeping enough freshness. 5,000 bottles produced. - LG
