Red | Tempranillo | Spain | Rioja | 750ml
80% tempranillo and 10% garnacha, with bits of mazuelo and graciano): Lurid red. Intense red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by cracked pepper and licorice. Taut and refreshingly bitter, with energetic cherry and redcurrant flavors and a hint of rhubarb. Tight and focused on the spicy finish. Pretty serious for the money.
