"Ruby-red. Superripe aromas of cherry and plum liqueur, complicated by espresso, bitter chocolate, floral oils, exotic baking spices and vanilla. Then amazingly fresh and juicy on the palate, the dark fruit flavors taking a brighter turn and picking up notes of minerals and smoked meat. Finishes sweet and expansive while remaining focused and fresh." (92 pts.)
The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.
