Every element has come together in the 2007 EMILIO MORO Ribera Del Duero for a successful night of seduction: smooth confidence, silky demeanor, masculine musk, and a certain foreign mysteriousness. Designed to turn even the whitest of would-be Romeos into Latin lotharios, share several glasses of this bottle with that object of desire sitting on your couch, and it’s almost a sure bet she will see nothing but Enrique Iglesias when looking into your eyes … this stylish, easygoing, and irresistibly tasty deep red wine is a good companion for a night of conquering. -J.M.
*Update. The 2009 Emilio Moro is even more seductive, benefiting from an excellent vintage. This one takes a darker, even dangerous, tone, balanced by its hallmark soft tannins and smooth texture. In other words, this is a bad boy. Ruggedly handsome on the outside, soft and sensitive on the inside.
