92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008

($35) Bright ruby. Exotically perfumed aroma of red berries, cherry, spicecake and sandalwood becomes richer with air, picking up plum compote and bitter chocolate qualities that carry onto the palate. A rich, fleshy style that betrays no rough edges, as the fruit sucks up the tannins. This has the depth to age but there's plenty of complexity already. Serve it with a peppery, grilled piece of lamb.

2006 Alejandro Fernandez Pesquera

Nose quite closed. A bit musty and dusty then kirsch, some blueberry (cobbler?), and plum. Josh nails it with sandalwood. This gives it the smell of a wine that is older than it is but without the secondary aromas of mature wine. In the mouth it starts with a touch of sweet fruit but then turns pretty dry without much else. Medium weight, but fades. This bottle a bit jagged on the finish. Reminds me a bit of the Southern Rhone for some reason. I didn't try the 2005 but this is a much weaker effort than the richer, more complex 2004 in my view. 88 - 89 points in my book.

Tempranillo, arguably the most famous of Spain's native grapes, is a vibrant, aromatic varietal that offers spicy, red fruit aromas and flavors. The grape's name translates to "little early one," a moniker that references fruit's early ripening tendency-- Tempranillo thrives even with a short growing season. The varietal is at its best in...
