Region Spain, Ribera del Duero
Brand Emilio Moro
Alcohol/vol 14%
Cherry red color covered with violet tones. On the nose it is honest and elegnat with a complex base of ripe black fruits. The aroma is very bright lasting freshness after aging and leaving tertiary in the background enriching the whole. In the palate it is balanced with great volume and easy to drink with a long and persistent aftertaste.

Mildly gritty blackberry and cassis aromas are lightly charred and a touch fiery. A fully saturated palate is at max weight, while this tastes primarily of blackberry and chocolaty oak. Considering that this is Moro’s basic RDD, with some 70,000 cases bottled, it’s exemplary. Drink through 2025.

I also tasted the 2016 Emilio Moro, from a cooler year with higher yields. For this label, they select grapes from vines ranging between 15 and 25 years of age, as the range here is (mostly) defined by vine age. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for one year before bottling. I found it fresher than the 2015, and it kept its juicy and fruit-driven profile. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannins. It would be phenomenal with a little more acidity.

Cinnamon and sassafras notes frame cherry and pomegranate flavors in this spicy red. Light tannins and tangerine acidity keep this focused. Juicy and fresh. Drink now through 2024.
