This blockbuster Spanish red wine from the little-heralded Cigales region conveys much of the character of its neighboring region of Ribera del Duero. It's a big-boned wine with lots of chunky, layered black fruit. The flavor nuances of black currant, spice, earth, chocolate, coffee and sweet oak are quite complex and rounded. The aroma has the cigar-store nuance often found in fine Bordeaux. While accessible now, this Museum could be cellared for two decades or more.
