While Rioja is typically the common and popular wine in Spain, the Ribera Del Duero is not to be forgotten. Considered as the more sensual, darker and broodier cousin of the Rioja, this style of wine is famed for taking the Tempranillo grape and blending it with Bordeaux grapes like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Bohórquez Cardela Crianza Ribera Del Duero D.O. 2015 received accolades in 2018, scoring Gold 90 points in Gilbert and Gaillard and 94 points in Mundial de Tempranillo. It is structured, intense and elegant, typical of a Bodegas Bohórquez wine with a palate of blueberries, dark cherries, plums, tobacco and spices.
Because of its intensity and bold flavors, the Bohórquez Cardela Crianza Ribera Del Duero D.O. 2015 is a wine that can be enjoyed with richer proteins. Enjoy this wine with grilled meats, Iberian pork cheeks, thyme lamb chops, vegetable stews, as well as gamier meats, such as deer and venison.

The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
