32. Brian Carter Cellars Tempranillo Blend Columbia Valley Corrida (2008)

« Prev Next » 32 of 35
Clean and focused on the nose with lovely raspberry fruit over hints of something a bit gamey and leathery, with hints of peach and cedar adding some detail. Perhaps a touch soft in the mouth, this feels a bit lazy with attractive sour cherry and raspberry fruit over dusty soil tones framed with hints of vanilla and toast. The finish is dry and a little austere. Actually not too far off the mark for Rioja, if a warmer climate Rioja. The finish shows a little fleshiness that may mean this will round out a bit in the future. Well-made, but lacks some complexity and detail. 87pts
