A decent young crianza for the price, as the entry level to Protos it still retains a good structure all be it better served on the cold side. Certainly a bright wine, definey food friendly. Still beats the vast majority of UK Supermarket wines on the shelf today !!
Delicious, a superb wine for the money.
Treat this well with time to breath and you get a real dose of red fruit flavour and a nice persistent finish. Okay it won't stand up to game but is more than good for hard cheese, steak or roast pork. It would be a pretty good choice for Xmas turkey too.
One of my favourites.
This wine has a cherry red colour with purple hue. It has a good structure, fruity, fresh and balanced with soft tannins. Subtle, spicy and pleasant toasted notes. Enjoyable with or without food. Enjoyable with good company. One of my favourites.
Very pleasant wine.
Cherry red with purple, clean and bright trim. Aroma very expressive, powerful, complex, fresh fruit, sweet spices, hints of red berries. intense, fruity, toasty flavor, with round tannins and a good finish.
Protos is a consistently good and very popular wine. Protos Roble is a very good value for money and is of a sufficient quality for drinking at home as well as bringing to a friend's house.

Protos was founded in 1927 and was the first winery in the wine region known as Ribera del Duero, being its first name precisely that one: Ribera del Duero. In the early 1980s, coinciding with the creation of the Regulatory Council of the area, the winery changed its original name to Bodegas Protos (from the Greek protos, which means first). It ceded its first name to the Regulatory Council, authorising it to use that name to identify the Ribera del Duero denomination of origin....
