Bodegas Cepa 21 Tempranillo Ribera del Duero Hito 2016 (91 points, $18)
A silkiness masks depth and density in this polished red. Cherry and berry flavors are ripe and juicy, backed by vanilla, spice and floral notes. Well-integrated tannins keep this focused through the toasty finish. Drink now through 2026. 29,166 cases made. From Spain.—Thomas Matthews
