Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

9.1

Dark, dark ruby coloration. On the nose, black cherry, blackberry, spice, smoke, but predominately jammy dark fruit until it starts to open up and becomes more Smokey and earthy with minerals. On the palate, full body, plum, currant, smoke, tobacco, oak and after 10 years tannins are still strong but not overpowering. Medium to long finish of the dark fruit and some smoke. — 17 hours ago

Bodegas Contador

Benjamin Romeo 'Contador' Tempranillo 2008

Bright crimson in colour. Notes of Camphor and Sandalwood together with tarry red and black fruits. A rich flavoursome and savoury palate - medium to full bodied - a fleeting tobacco note. Firm yet silky tannins. Very polished. One of the best Tempranillos (actually 86% Tempranillo and 14% Garnacha) I’ve ever had - up there with Vega Sicilia. Shows the versatility of the Tempranillo grape and its suitability to the warm climes of Spain. One of the 1001 Wines. 98 points from Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate. — 5 days ago

I will keep an eye out for more of his wines. The Contador was brilliant.

Bodegas del Marqués de Vargas

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Critic tasting note: "A dark color and warm aromas of plum, raisin and prune announce a fuller-bodied wine. In the mouth, this feels sappy and extracted, while black cherry and prune flavors are darker and fatter than what you find in most crianzas. On the finish, dark-fruit notes quickly give way to prune. Michael Schachner" - 88/100 — 6 days ago

La Rioja Alta

Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo Blend 2010

Classically styled Rioja - exactly what one should expect. Lovely plummy fruit, a little heavy on the vanilla notes for my taste. Great backbone of acidity. — 6 days ago
