A bargain in the closeout bin.

I found this in the closeout bin at a local wine shop for $8.50. These finds are more rare than they use to be but they do exist. Solid overall effort but drink now!

2011 Miguel Torres Ribera del Duero Céleste Crianza – Spain, Castilla y León, Ribera del Duero (8/23/2018)
Day 1: Rustic wine with earth, leather, prunes, chocolate and underbrush. More classic in style than some of the modern fruit bombs that Ribera has been producing lately. For the $8 I paid for this certainly worth it. 87 points
Day 2: Very similar to day 1. Acidity is lacking a bit. 87 points
Day 3: Probably not a good idea with this one. Muted flavors and not much excitement. 82 points
Recommendation: If you own this wine drink now! (87 points)
