Pagos de Matanegra
Beautiful floral nose. With time in the glass you see the rich perfume of this wine evolving. It has notes of cocoa, vanilla, anise, fine leather, pencil, fine cigars and red and blue fruits. The finish is long and lingers on the palate. This is a gorgeous wine.This is Ribera del Duero at it’s finest. This is the raison d’être for this place. Imagine this wine with a good leg of roast lamb or a nice steak and you are imagining well my friend! This is what you want to drink with your Easter lamb or your anniversary filet mignon. If you are really hedonistic, this is what you want to drink every weekend!
Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: 93 POINTS. “…This is a great example of what a Ribera from old vineyards should be, fresh, authentic, powerful, and concentrated, yet harmonious and supple…Drink 2014-2022”
