An astonishing value, the 2003 Ercavio Roble, made from 100% Cencibel (the local term for Tempranillo), smells like a great Cabernet Sauvignon made by Naparsquo;s Ann Colgin. Gorgeous blueberry liqueur notes intermixed with graphite and minerals jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored 2003. It boasts fabulous intensity, an alluring texture, and a rich, concentrated finish with no hard edges. This offering could easily compete with wines selling at four to five times the price, but given its origins, I would suggest drinking it over the next 3ndash;4 years. Bravo!

Deep ruby. Superripe aromas of dark berry liqueur, licorice, clove and tree bark. Lush and fat, with very sweet flavors of roasted blackberry and licorice. Finishes with fine, dusty tannins and lingering sweetness. An excellent value.

Tempranillo. Itrsquo;s from Spain. Itrsquo;s known as their ldquo;noble grape.rdquo; And best of all, itrsquo;s delicious. Yet somehow this grape remains a mystery to many of those in this area of the world, much like the political decisions of Erie County government. Well, this wine wonrsquo;t solve the countyrsquo;s fiscal crisis, but if you are searching for something new and unrestrained, like our previous budget, give Ercavio a try. This medium-bodied wine is a brilliant dark purple-colored Tempranillo that exhibits fleshy flavors of very ripe raspberry and blackberry, followed up by hints of spice. Firm yet round tannins melt away into a fruity finish that is accentuated by hints of vanilla. This is pretty much pure, unadulterated enjoyment for your mouth. So, if you canrsquo;t leave Erie County, you can at least take a holiday in Spain with Ercavio and leave your cares behind you!

A lush, full bodied Tempranillo bursting with black berry fruit. The texture is rich and soft around the edges for those drinkers that prefer a not too dry style. Impressive depth and flavor for this price point mdash; a safe bet for fans of Cabernet or Shiraz.

The first wine I reviewed for Premier was the 2003 Ercavio. Sometimes Iandrsquo;m afraid to revisit wines I was passionate about early in my wine education, for fear that they would seem undrinkable to me now. But if the 2003 was anything like our current 2006, I have nothing to be ashamed of, as I still believe it to be one of the best $10 Spanish wines available. Most Spanish wines at this price deliver a rather simple mouthful of jammy fruit, but the Ercavio complicates its plum and blueberry flavors with savory notes of grilled meat, damp earth, dark chocolate and wood smoke. In terms of complexity and balance, this stands out among its peers.

There are 10,000 cases of the 2007 Ercavio Roble, made up of 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo) and aged for five months in French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple in color, it delivers an expressive nose of cedar, earth notes, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. Thick, dense, and opulent on the palate, it has gobs of savory black fruit, licorice and spice notes, enough structure to evolve for 1ndash;2 years, and a lengthy finish. It totally over-delivers for its humble price. This is one to buy by the case.
