Bodegas Trus 2006 Reserva Ribera del Duero
92 points
$45.99
Opaque dark garnet color. Complex aromas and flavors of sour cherries, turned earth, and potters clay with a gritty, crisp, bone-dry full body and an astringent, complex, medium-length finish with firm tannins and heavy oak. A wine that would soften with well-marbled red meats.

Martin Berdugo 2008  Ribera del Duero
91 points
$36.99
Opaque dark garnet color. Bold aromas and flavors of black cherries, tobacco, funky toasty yeast, and cleaned up with air with a chewy, vibrant, bone-dry full body and a mildly astringent, elaborate, long finish with well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A pretty wine with nice tearing, rich warm flavors follow.

Bodegas Trus 2011 Crianza Ribera del Duero
90 points
$24.99
Opaque dark garnet color. Toasty aromas and flavors of toasted coconut, faint black cherry, eucalyptus, and saddle leather with a lightly tannic, bright, dry full body and a mildly astringent, huge, long finish with notes of tobacco with moderate oak. A very elegant, restrained wine for the table.

Martin Berdugo 2009 Reserva Ribera del Duero
88 points
$27
Opaque dark garnet color. Rich aromas and flavors of mazzard black cherry and tobacco with a tannic, puckering, bone-dry full body and a mildly astringent, nuanced, medium-long finish with firm tannins and moderate oak. A wine that will improve with age and should be decanted.
