"Selected from old vines-some more than 100 years old-in different areas of Ribera, this is a strange beast. It's filled with herbal and spice notes plus intriguing scents of flowers and earth. The texture is firm, meaty and ample, the wine deliciously rich in ripe red fruit flavors."

Product Description:

"A brilliant dark ruby in color, Roble exhibits a beautiful, perfumed nose of intense black cherry, violet, sweet spice, and leather. This wine boasts a full body with velvety tannins that develop into a long, persistent finish.

Roble is a pure expression of Tempranillo manually harvested from the old, gnarled vines of high altitude vineyards in the Ribera del Duero. This area is celebrated for its rich cultural history — a component that contributes greatly to the essence of the final wine. Roble translates to “wood” in Spanish, bearing testament to the 12 months of refinement in French and American oak barrels" - Importer
