Perez Pascuas 2017 Ribera del Duero Reserva La Navilla
La Navilla comes from a single, eponymous, south-facing vineyard, the highest in the estate, where the vines average 35-40 years old. It is aged, uniquely, for 20 months in exclusively French oak. Fresh berries ooze from the glass, and the deep color suggests an altogether different wine from the others, but reassurance comes when the jamminess is cut by fresh, bright acidity in the finish.
