Cerro el Cuberillo Collection 2014-2019 Rudeles
€ 313,39 (in Vat)
|Region||Ribera del Duero|
Nose: hints of wood, vanilla and black fruits such as Cassis, cherries and plums.
Taste: more spices in the flavour like laurel, also hints of tobacco and some more black fruits. There is a perfect balance between the acidity and the tannins, making this wine powerful, but not overwhelmingly.
Finish: A long silky smooth finish that keeps for well over a minute.
The 2015 vintage certainly is another good example of a great vintage for Ribera del Duero. 2015 can be described in two words: 'Hot' and 'Dry'. This means that the vines really needed to make an effort and that the older vines, with their roots deep in the soil, produced some of the best fruit. Especially with vines of over 100 years old, these were optimal conditions for the Cerro el Cuberillo.
Nose: wonderful fruitiness with hints of blackberries, cherries and plum, but also some pleasant hints of coffee.
Taste: rather complex, yet velvety. Along the black fruit, also some hints of liquorice. The smooth tannins turn this in a very harmonious wine.
Finish: long, but keeps very smooth and silky.
Nose: though the wine is still relatively closed, the nose already offers whifs of dark fruits, spices and some beautifully integrated hints of wood.
Taste: after some time decanting, hints of vanilla, black fruits (cassis, blackberries). A fresh acidity developes, the balance shows this wine will get better with time.
