89 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2009

($18; 80% tempranillo and 10% each mazuelo and garnacha) Medium red. Mellow aromas of roasted cherry, brown spices and rose. Smooth, ripe red fruit flavors provide very good palate coverage and show little in the way of tannins. The floral quality gains strength with air and carries through the long, velvety finish. Offers good immediate appeal and a warm character.

GREAT VALUE!

by BADBILLY
I gave it 5 stars based on the 'deliciousness for the price' factor (scientific, huh?!). I have had over a dozen bottles of this medium bodied and somewhat complex wine (not in the same night) that goes great with paella, pizza, cheese, steak, just about anything. I like it, my friends like it. If it was $10 more I would still buy it - it will not disappoint.

I have had the 2004 on 2 separate occasions, with consistent tasting notes. This well-crafted wine is nicely balanced, with abundant (but not over-the-top) fruit and a silky smooth mouthfeel. In my opinion, this is drinking like a $30+ wine and is deserving of its place on the WS top 100. Highly recommended.

Tempranillo

Tempranillo, arguably the most famous of Spain's native grapes, is a vibrant, aromatic varietal that offers spicy, red fruit aromas and flavors.
