Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Tempranillo Rioja Limited Edition 2006

Member Review by cheKozaro:

To rate this wine a 3 is an injustice. This Tempranillo is deep, rich, silky, well balanced and OH SO enjoyable. THIS is what enjoying a fantastic Spanish wine is all about. Again, SO enjoyable and yet so unpretentious! I easily give this a 4!

Deep red. Dark cherry, plum, tobacco and earth aromas along with an intriguing smoky note. A sweet, supple midweight with a bitter edge to its dark berry and cherry-vanilla flavors. This has a pleasantly light touch and finishes with gentle peppery cut and good persistence.

This plush, modern red frames black cherry jam flavors with tobacco and dark chocolate notes. Thick and juicy, with well-integrated tannins and a clean finish. Drink now through 2010.

Light and fresh. This supple red offers bright cherry and spicy flavors, with a smoky, slightly dry finish. Drink now.

The 2006 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo that spent 14 months in American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it offers up an attractive nose of cedar, spice box, leather, violets, and blackberry. On the palate it is medium-bodied with ample savory fruit leaning toward elegance. It has good concentration and a bit of structure that should permit another 6 years of enjoyable drinking. It is a good value.

Thirty years ago, there was little Rioja sold outside the Spanish-speaking world. Now we are fortunate to have a plethora of choices. Discover this ruby-colored, ripe-berry scented wine and enjoy the possibilities!

Bright, deep, cherry-red. Intense aromas of ripe black berries to the nose accompanied with balsamic touches which are reminiscent of coconut and liquorice. It is fresh and pleasant in the mouth with a noticeable texture where the smokey and fruit assembled nuances reappear. Long and enfolding finish.
