Tom Cannavan of wine-pages.com chooses the Bodegas Emina, Pasion Ribera del Duero 2009 from Spain as his Wine of the Week for 1st July 2012.
Sam and Michelle talk about Bodegas Castano Solanera Cuvee from Vino Bello in Zona Rosa. Powerful, seductively perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry, blueberry, dried flowers, incense and minerals. Deep but lively, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a sexy violet pastille quality. Supple tannins gain strength with air and add grip to an impressively sweet, persistent finish. Very energetic and delicious right now. IWC 90pts.
