I fried this on top of the radiator to get it up to operating temperature for the Wilks who were coming for a Bridge Dinner.So the first taste was warm with an explosion of fruit which soon gave way to a smoother refined dry taste. As the label says, it was as unique as the night sky in Ribera del Duoro. I’m a fan of Torres wines on both sides of the Atlantic but sometimes the hyperbole of the language used stretches the vine a bit.
