3 of 16

Casar de Burbia, Tebaida No5 2009
Decanter average score:
18pts/20 (93/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 18 Sarah Jane Evans MW 18.5 Mike Ritchie MW 17.5
Savoury and meaty on the nose though still vibrantly fruity. Palate offers lively redcurrant fruit, with a citrus tang as a counterweight to the oak and grip of foursquare tannins. A great wine, made with all cares and luxuries.
