ValTrevieso Joven 2012

ValTrevieso Joven 2012 Kaufhof, €7.99 May 2013

First of the new season Riberas. Bright, purple with blue rivulets, some fruit on the nose but much more in the mouth, with hints of mint and most surprisingly some vanilla in the finish. A good Ribera ‘fat’ mouth feel.

Not the best Joven I have ever drunk, but for this money pretty good.

ValTrevieso is unusual in not being 100% Tempranillo. Instead it also contains some Cabernet Sauvingon and some Merlot. I imagine the mint came from the Cab Sav – could the vanilla have come from the Merlot or has ValTravieso used something else?
