A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: This wine is 95% Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo. It was aged for one year in American and French oak and then spent six months in bottle before being released. There's lots of cherry and red fruit, with leather, vanilla and mint undertones. Juicy and fresh, this food-friendly Tempranillo is easygoing and balanced. It will be particularly suited to barbecued ribs. (Vintages panel, July 2018) Price $ 14.95
