MiBal Crianza 2018
This is a beautifully traditional Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero’s storied terroir. Aged in a mix of French and American oak, the crimson-hued wine displays toasty tobacco and leather notes along with red fruit. It is a well-structured and elegant wine made in the classic and beloved style of Spanish Tempranillo. Freshness and depth describe this classic Ribera del Duero. Blend of French and American oak lead to toasty tobacco and notes of barnyard and saddle and eucalyptus. Structured with finesse.
