VISIT MIAMI'S BEST WINE BAR

2011 BODEGAS VALDUERO TIERRA ALTA DE 2 RACIMOS GRAN RESERVA, RIBERA DEL DUERO SPAIN

It is exclusively the oldest vineyards that supply the grapes to Gran Reserva - at least 70-year-old vines, which deliver very low yields and the wine is also densely packed and fierce in its structure. 4 years of barrel aging leaves its mark on the wine which gets a rounded, garnet red color and developed flavors of smoke, meat, caramel and leather. It really is a class example of how Ribera del Duero's best wines should taste. Valduero only releases the wine when it is completely ready to drink - and 2011 is great now.
