Castilla Y León Tempranillo

Bodegas Numanthia

Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2012

Big and bold. Lotsa oak and lotsa fruit. They are just starting to come together under a layer of silky dry tannins. Still it has plenty of forward nature to be very enjoyable now (though its best years are likely 5-8 years hence). — 5 days ago

Roble Tempranillo

Impressive entry level Tempranillo from Toro region in Spain. Bright ruby, rich texture with fresh acidity and black cherry notes. Outstanding value. 91 — 7 days ago

Nose a bit funky like black olive, the syrah component to this wine really amped its complexity. A bit more brooding than full tempranillo crianza offerings, this has integrated notes of cedar and ripe red fruits, and that touch of earthy, savory, lightly pungent syrah in support.

Good complement to garlic toast, roasted peppers and grilled salchiccons.

So much chocolate! Some coffee and hazelnut too. Some juicy tannins. Loved that finish.

The producer is using Tinto Fino not Tempranillo. Respectfully, requested Delectable change.

Ten years in bottle, time to check in on my first bottle of six.

On the nose, dark currants. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked black plum, raspberries & ripe strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, crushed limestone minerals, dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, steeped fruit tea, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes with red & dark fresh florals.

The body was big and very full with a hour in the decanter it moves to more medium full with another hour in the decanter. The structure, length, tension and balance are just arriving to a sweet spot. Still plenty of life left in this 05. Another 10 years and perhaps more. The tannins are still pronounced but softened & round with a strong dusty presence. The fruits are; gorgeous, sexy, lush & ripe. Blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum, creamy raspberries, raisins, ripe cherries & strawberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark chocolate, crushed limestone minerals, a fair amount of dry rock & stone, some black rich earth, soft leather, dry stems, hints of mint, dry herbs, steeped fruit tea, black licorice, dark berry cola, sweet tarry notes, used espresso roast with red & dark, purple, fresh florals. The acidity is near perfect. The long, ripe, lush, well balanced finish is excellent and lasts minutes. Beautiful wine with sex-appeal.

Sure David T but Tinto Fino is a colloquial name, used by locals, and they won’t deny it is Tempranillo, they just have their own (pet) name for it. But for Delectable and anyone else it is Tempranillo.

@Amy Huson I am simply respectful of a producers culture and preference of terminology. I respect producers above all, which is why I photo profile them and their properties in all my posts. While I understand it’s Tempranillo, it’s wasn’t their choice of terminology to use on their label. Hence, I respect their preference or choice to use Tino Fino. Also, not every wine drinker will know there are a number different grape names used in Spain and Portugal for Tempranillo, (Tinto Fino, Ojo de Liebre, Tinto de Toro, Tinto Madrid, and Cencibel. In Portugal, Tempranillo is often referred to as Tinta Roriz and Aragonez.) If a person saw my post and decided to look for the bottle in a shop, they would see Tino Fino on the label and not Tempranillo. I also wanted to avoid them thinking it might be a different bottling rather than the same. Thank you for the discussion & engagement.. Cheers!

Reserva Tierras de Cair Tempranillo 2011

De c-EYE-ear. We opened this and it smelled like paint. Not the beat way to impress a date. But ive never seen a wine open so quickly. Within 15 minutes this wine showed the profile classic to Ribera Del Duoro wines. This js a great value if you can find it, an even better winery if you're going to do the tour. — 13 days ago

Barrica Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2006

2006, such nice tannins. Haven’t had this wine in a long time. I am pleasantly surprised how delicious this wine is. With 90% Tempranillo, and 10% Cab, I am surprised how much tannins there are. 14% alcohol goes down easy, — 7 days ago
