2003 Guelbenzu Azul Ribera del Queiles

Ruby color with some orange, 39% Tempranillo, 34% Merlot, and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, earthy, medium intensity, lots of cherries, plums, fig, leather, flowery, citrus, loaded with cigar, with moderate oak, and definite earth. On the palate, dry, medium body, good complexity, medium tannin, medium+ acidity, juicy fruit, chalky soil, leather, good depth, good balance, and a solid spice and plum finish. Few bottles left of this, I will drink them all if I have to. Purchase this Wine!
