Soft on the nose and slightly leathery and dusty with a gently stemmy element to the lightly roasted raspberry fruit. A bit soft on entry but nicely broad, this shows off some meaty orchard fruit tones early on. A hint of licorice is joined by slightly dull flavors of strawberry/rhubarb and cooked raspberries. The acidity pops on the finish, lending this more of a strawberry cream profile with decent length. 86pts

First wine that I tried at the Rioja event. Nice oaky barrel flavors in the aroma and palate. Update: Nov 9, 2011 - Had this in the office. The oaky aromas are very complex, though not as powerful as I remember, with hints of herbs and red chili peppers. The mouth has pretty nice tannins, with a good deal of heat in the back. A little bit of cherry fruit in the middle softens it.

Prototypical Rioja. Fresh and bright with an earthy mineral core. Great aroma of dried cherries and oak. Not too extreme in any facet so it would be a great gift wine. Paired lovingly with a grilled chorizo sausage. Do not decant as it fell apart later in the evening. Drink now.

Had this 2 June, 2011. Very classical Rioja - berry plums with clear leather, cedar and vanilla. Soft oak gives a soft and medium full taste. In fact, for a Rioja, it is surprisingly light, not very tannic and has a gentle aftertaste. Not a lot of depth, but easy-drinking. I liked it.

This is truly delicious. It even held up the next day (after pumping out the air and keeping in the refrigerator). At first sniff, it reminds me of being in an old library with the windows opened and a fresh spring breeze, and then, at the end, just when you're not sure, a hint of something sweet, like a freshly opened jar of maraschino cherries or freshly licked red lollipop. The taste is velvety soft, and a little smokey-spice lightly scratching the back of your throat, like someone lightly brushing their finger nails against your skin. As the wine settles on your palate and the aroma makes its way into your nasal cavity, a blast of sweet strawberry syrup with a faint whisper of plum jam. This is SUCH a fun wine!!!

Tasted my first tempranillo today, and absolutely loved it! I am a huge fan of Merlots, and the Bodegas Tempranillo reminded me of a a fine glass of good Merlot. It was fresh, creamy, fruity and delicious on it's own, as well as alongside a meaty bolognese. Very clean finish! Delicious!

88 Points -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July 2008 "Medium red. Shy nose slowly opens to display redcurrant and dried cherry, along with subtle vanilla bean and tobacco qualities. Light, gently sweet red fruit flavors are silky and smooth, with no obvious tannins or rough edges. Understated and nicely balanced, with good finishing lift and clarity. Fans of old-school Rioja should give this a spin."

A silky red, light but graceful, with focused cherry, spice and vanilla flavors. In the traditional style, but fresh and clean. Drink now through 2007.

100% Tempranillo; shows dark red with rich strawberry and raspberry notes finishing with a vanillin softness. A perfect partner to roasted meats and stews.

Ruby red in color, with light strawberry flavors covered in toasty oak and vanilla. Very soft in the mouth, this crianza is round and smooth. This style of wine shows how beneficial oak aging can be for the Tempranillo grape.

This wine shows aromas of fresh, crushed red cherries and spices, with vanilla and oak hints. With a soft, long character in the mouth, the wine shows intense red fruit that combines the subtle strawberry and cherry aromas typical of Rioja's Tempranillo grape with the expressive vanilla-coconut aromas of the American oak barrels. It is the classic Rioja marriage of wine and wood. - Winery
