Wine Review: This ruby colored Tempranillo from Spain is consistently a very good value. The 2012 opens with a blueberry and Dr. Pepper like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty root beer and blackberry blend with notes of anise and plum. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins fade away nicely. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with a juicy bacon burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Manually harvested from estate vineyards over 40 years of age in the Rioja Alta villages of Urunuela, Cenicero and San Asensio. Black fruit aromas of plums and blueberries are followed by a rich and velvety palate and a lingering, refreshing finish.
