2004 Bodegas Penafiel Ruben Ramos Ribera del Duero

($20) Opaque ruby. Primary dark berry aromas slowly open to reveal tobacco, dark chocolate and minerals. Firm and chewy, with bitter cherry and chocolate flavors firmed by youthful acidity and solid tannins. Finishes on a firm cherry pit note, with good cling. This definitely needs some cellar time.
