Color of different shades of purple. Nose of intense dried strawberry, crayon, oily paint, cherry, aldehyde, nose is good. Taste shows more fruity note, cherry, strawberry, slightly sweet with oak, mellow tannins, a bit Sprite indeed, and a touch of mineral. Aftertaste of some bittersweet rind, and a bit peppery, medium. A good one.

Smooth, easy to drink, shorter finish, spicy, would be good with charcuterie

I love tempranillo. Flavors of cherry and strawberry sauce, and subtle wood. Highly tannic which I personally like. Medium-high acidity. For the price, this wine is a great value.

Not a sweet smell. Almost salty. Purple, somewhat translucent. Some tannin. High acidity, salty finish. Smokey. Finishes without acid, acid peaks while swallowing. Not much pepper/ spice.

Drank 12/18/17. Pnp

Saw the 90 pt rating (think it was The Advocate) so thought id give it a whirl since the price was right.
Nose of Red cherry, plum, and a bit of earth. Not much oak on the nose despite the 12 months of aging. Palate of cassis, tar, pepper, and some wood. Finish is quite long, but with quite a bit of unresolved tannins. A decent wine, but not great.

3/20/7/2/4 + 50 = 86 pts
