2003 Emilio Moro Ribera Del Duero
"Ripe fruit and solid structure marry in impressive harmony in this balanced red. It offers blackberry, chocolate and mineral notes, with herbal and smoky accents. Has an appealing sweetness, but stays fresh though the finish. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 cases imported."
"Saturated deep red. Pungent minerally aromas of strawberry, raspberry and cedar. Sweet, superconcentrated and deep but with rare vinosity for the vintage lifting the flavors of strawberry, raspberry, mocha and spicy oak. An impressively expansive wine with outstanding length. The Moro family has reportedly gotten rid of most of their older barrels." -92+ Stephan Tanzer, IWC
