Casajus Ribera del Duero 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark and damp smelling with earthy coffee bean notes, minerally., meaty tones and lots of scrub brush and slightly gamey tones. This smells a little angry and black shale minerally. Weighty on entry with a tight palate packed with dark unsweetened/roasted strawberry that is backed up with considerable dry extract and a big tannic punch. This is dense and chewy and a touch rustic yet with great depth, sinewy and muscular. The acidity is bright yet in balance and the tannins are juicy fruit tannins with almost no astringency allowing the licorice and cocoa to reverberate on the long finish. A remarkable value! 92pts

Baskets and baskets upon baskets of full, ripe, plump, just picked, juicy, red raspberries! A bit of medicine, a hint of earth, but mostly the boatloads of raspberries.

Tastes like funky grape juice to me.
