2009 Torremilanos, Ribera del Duero, Colección (RT95+) The flagship wine of the Torremilanos Estate, this is the current vintage being release 10 years post-harvest. 100% Tempranillo from 100-year-old vines that’s aged for 30 months in French oak and then aged for 7 years in bottle before release. This prolific wine displays the heart and soul of Ribera del Duero! Thunderous base notes of luxurious blackberry, black cherry and massive minerality dominate the bouquet and are echoed on the palate. The wrap-up is long and enduring, as wonderfully integrated ripe tannins punctuate the finish. Although there is ample fruit in the foreground, the structure is there to allow long aging that will pay off! In a word – exquisite! Drink 2022 – 2035+
