Hacienda Lopez de Haro (Bodega Classica)

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

The 2013 Bodega Classica Lopez de Haro Reserva is medium dark in the glass. The nose is aromatic with violets, cigars, ripe plums and earth. On the palate, we find big, dark fruit, oak spice and a meaty black olive note. Tannins are firm and the acidity is lively, so it's great to sip as well as have it with some steak. — 6 days ago

Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Sicilia

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2006

Chocolate, dark berries and a hint of mint with a milky flavor and an incredible balance. Elegance is written all over it. Just lots of potential is still there for evolution. One of the best wines I have ever tasted. — 19 days ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

Bright, vivid red. Medium weight with a hint of tobacco, smoke, and crushed herbs on the nose. Not showing much age, with some round unresolved tannins. Dark cherry, tart blackberry, and bright pomegranate flavors dominate the background notes of oaky dusty leather. Works well with roast chicken. — a day ago

Does the Tempranillo have a sharp taste in it that puckers the pallet?

Palacios Remondo

La Montesa Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014

A interesting blend of 88% Garnacha & 12% Tempranillo grapes which is medium bodied. Nose of fig, clove, and autumn leaves with the pallate adding flavors of raspberry sauce with a tinge of sweetness. A perfect pairing with cinnamon & paprika spiced pork chops topped with a cherry sauce and mashed potatoes. ($18) [10/16/18] — 4 days ago
