Ad Libitum Tempranillo Blanco Spain Rioja Red 2009

Member Review by Fenderbaum:

(A non-vintage Tempranillo Blanco - not a red wine as specified in the title - any way to have this amended?) A little musty on the nose with light spices and a little bit of citrus. Excellent on the palate. Transforms from peach on the front to an acidic apple on the back. A nicely balanced, well made wine. Would pair very well with shellfish or baked salmon.
