Pinna Fidelis 2009 Crianza
Tempranillo (Ribera del Duero)
This wine’s core is saturated with black but lifted by magenta and brick notes toward the meniscus. The nose smells of licorice and medicinal herbs as well as black-cherry LifeSavers. Medium-full in body, the wine is not as heavy as the nose suggests. The caressing tannins and mouthwatering acidity on the attack make this a great wine by the glass or as an apéritif at a gathering. The tannins do come through just a bit gritty on the finish, creating some nice texture. Drink now through 2016.
