Bodegas Alejandro Fernández Ribera del Duero Tinto Pesquera 2005 Tempranillo Red Wine, $25.49-$29.99, 91+ points, was somewhere between Tannat black and Bordeaux purple/red with a broad clear rim.
Plum, cedar, and tobacco smells dominated the nose.
A lush full body carried excellent acidity, persistent and pleasant tannin, complex flavors of roses, tobacco, plum, blackberries, and red cherry liqueur, all of which trailed into a long finish of spice, well integrated alcohol (14%), and eucalyptus.
