Bodegas Campos Reales Tempranillo Blend la Mancha 2006

Member Review by LiamZurich:

Hard to believe that Robert Parker gives this a 92. Definitely not deserved. It is a good wine and great value but hardly a great or fantastic wine. It is wine which still requires 3-5 more years to mature before drinking. Maybe then it might deserve the lofty rating given to it.

Bodegas Campos Reales:
In a region with a very long tradition of winemaking such as El Provencio. where our facilities are situated, the passage of time has helped us build and increase our know-how and skills. At Bodegas Campos Reales we retain from tradition that which we know should not be changed... hand harvesting, traditional pruning, the importance of indigenous grape varieties, aging in quality oak barrels...

Fantastic. New-World style Tempranillo. Beautiful fruit forward wine with great balance, complexity and finish. Juicy acidity makes it a great match for many types of foods. We had it with mesquite grilled pork. This wine could easily go for two or three-times the price.

Fruity, but not too sweet (sweeter nose than taste). Balanced tannins. Good for a party.

Bright purple. Fresh red berries and candied cherry on the nose. Taut, focused dark berry flavors are complemented by notes of licorice and smoke, with no tannins to be found. Finishes slightly clenched, with an echo of dark berries. This is one serious bargain.

An excellent value from 30-year old Tempranillo vines, this tank-fermented and aged, medium-bodied 2003 is all fruit. Reminiscent of Beaujolais, it reveals hints of bubble gum, Kool Aid, strawberries, and cherries in a clean, fruity style. It could be served slightly chilled over the next 12ndash;18 months.

Bright purple. Primary dark berry aromas are complicated by licorice, dried flowers and cured meat. Complex for this price point, offering deep blackberry and blueberry flavors and a firm, chewy texture. Itrsquo;s rare to find this seriousness at this price.

Bright, medium ruby-red. Slightly tanky, musky aromas of crushed dark berries. Juicy and nicely concentrated, with black raspberry, licorice and pepper flavors, along with a wild, gamey character and an exotic suggestion of banana.
