Wine Review: This entry level Tempranillo from Artadi opens with mineral influenced mild black currant. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, shows nice fruit and is friendly. The flavor profile is a gentle red plum with notes of mild oak. I also detected hints of black cherry in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors subtly slip away. This wine is food friendly and would be a perfect and affordable crowd pleasing wine to bring to a barbecue this summer. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A wine that clearly demonstrates the approachability, quality and balance of a modern Rioja wine, the Artadi Tempranillo is clean and elegant with vibrant red fruit and subtle tannins. Made to enjoy soon after release, this consumer-friendly wine is gratifying, accessible and agreeable.
