TASTING NOTE: After some ups and downs in quality in recent years, it's a pleasure to see Pesquera back on form, given its role in the history of Ribera del Duero. This is clean, modern and well balanced, showing subtle coconut and vanilla-scented American oak, fine-tannins, succulent red berry fruit and the concentration and acidity to age further in the bottle.
