Great Tempranillo. Under $20. Needs to breathe at least 30 minutes to lose the tannic bite. Full flavor after that.

A knockout for this vintage. Concentrated fruit with and hedonistic oak aromatics. Refined finish.

Bit spicy for my tastes but still a good pick. Strong berry, deep reds.

Smooth finish. Good, semi fruity nose. Medium body. Great with spicy red sauce.

From a nice vintage. Still a baby. Great red fruit, spice, and tannins. Needs some air before the aromatics develop. This wine eschews the roasted flavors that Rioja’s are notorious for. One of the higher qpr’s.
