Castilla Y León Tempranillo

Tamaral

Roble Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Black pepper, an irony thing, fresh blackberries, a touch of vanilla. This is very good. The palate is well crafted : there is a great acid drive and there is matter on the side, a nice thickness and some grip, a beautiful blackberry fruit all along, some tannins kick things up in the middle. Theid palate is spherical and there is sweetness to it but then the finish starts and it's very dry, and a bit of salt and bitterness pop up in the rear. That's a great young tempranillo. I'd say one of the best I've had recently! — 13 days ago

Hito Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Молочные ириски,лакокраска, выпечка, ваниль, вишня. Элегантный довольно-таки. Долгий дубовый финиш. Нормальное, без откровений, но на уровне вполне. — 16 days ago

Finca Valentina Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2013

Elegante. Especiado en nariz. En boca destaca sobre todo las especias que aporta la madera (24 meses en barrica). El 2013 es mas equilibrado todavía que el 2015. Acidez casi perfecta.

Pintia Toro Tempranillo 2013

Deep ruby with opaque center and a dull platinum rim, medium viscosity. On the nose, it has frank and expressive blackberry, cassis and ripe cherry aromas followed by gentle spice and oak overtones. This just smells elegant. On the palate, it turns into a delight with a plushy broad mouthfeel and firm yet silky tannins. Confirmed the aromas and got vanilla and spices in the long and floral finish. Dry wine, medium acidity, medium tannins, medium plus body and medium plus alcohol. Very well integrated with a noticeable structure. Decanted for 3 hours. Probably will be hard to guess Tempranillo in a blind tasting...first time trying a Vega Sicilia wine and I can see why their wines are so sought after! A treat any day really, but even better on a smoky Seattle day. — 8 days ago

Viña San Román Toro Tempranillo 2010

Nose of mushroom and compost, leather, tar, vanilla and blackberry pie. Spicy on the tongue, with almost bitter cherry and blueberry skin. Dark chocolate and mocha strike on the mid palate with minerality to finish. Plush yet elegant. Drank side by side with ‘09 - prefer the ‘10. Alcohol stays in balance on this vintage, subtle oak notes show to finish. Drink now with a splash decant. — 7 days ago
