TN: 2017 Guimaro Ribeira Sacra Finca Capeliños (Spain, Galicia, Ribeira Sacra)

  • 2017 Guimaro Ribeira Sacra Finca Capeliños - Spain, Galicia, Ribeira Sacra (6/12/2020)
    Bright red fruit, nice accents of spice and a bit of floral character on a mid-weight frame that does not show any sense of overripeness or alcoholic heat. It’s well balanced and quite drinkable, but for over $60 seems much too expensive for what it is. Can’t argue with the quality, but not going to get more at that price point. I can get tons of other wines with similar profiles for a lot less.

I picked up one of the more entry level bottlings, the Camino Real, from a Panzer offering a few months back. Looking forward to trying it soon. IIRC, it was about $30.

I have a bottle of the under-$20 entry level wine. If it’s in the same mold it would be a great value. We’ll see.

I just opened the basic 18 Tinto. Maybe a bit more earth than your tasting note but otherwise fairly similar. Could use a bit more acid/tension but for under $20 this is ridiculously good.
