Bela Tempranillo - Ribera del Duero

Bela is the new Ribera del Duero property from CVNE in Rioja. This is a different type of RDD, one with exotic blueberry and spice aromas that settle on gamy and sauvage. But on the palate, it's hard and tannic, with the pinch of astringency. Herbal plum and currant flavors have a tea and grass-like quality, while this is spicy and suggestive of nutmeg and green herbs on a hard and grabby finish.
