Thomas Engelunds beskrivelse af flasken
A gorgeous cherry color in the glass with a garnet rim. The nose is powerful and mineral with added notes of ripe fruit, cocoa bean, and sweet spices. Flavorful on the palate, this wine is fruity, spicy, with round tannins and fine bitter notes.
This red is rich yet balanced, with black cherry, licorice, espresso and mineral flavors supported by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Not showy, but dense and graceful. Drink now through 2022.
Wine & Spirits
Like a caged wild animal, this Ribera moves from side to side in the mouth in a rage of tannins. Under that structure, there’s a layer of deliciously fresh red fruit flavors. Decant it for charcuterie.

The 2010 Dominio de Atauta shows increased freshness compared with the 2011 vintage. Here there is more verticality, very good acidity, a mixture of red and black berries and great length. This is a great, textbook Ribera del Duero, showing power and balance. Super! Drink now-2018.
