Avan Concentracion 2004

  • Area: Spain, Ribera del Duero
  • Grape: Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Rating: Black 93 Dilettante 94
Description: This classic, Old World Spanish tempranillo has depth and elegance with an earthy perfume of woodland flowers. Soft and luscious in the mouth, it tastes of plum, spice, elderberry, cardamom, black cherry with an elegant pomegranate lift. Great balance from the enticing nose to the bone dry finish. Decanting not required although a little air brings out its elegance. We loved this wine.

Price: $50

Note: Perfect with a grilled rack of lamb
