Masia de Yabar Tempranillo Temecula Valley 2005

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

91 points. This wine’s aroma is uniquely multilayered. There are warm notes of caramel and mocha, with a subtle buttery quality and a nice nuttiness. There is a generous amount of spice, mixed in with some ripe plum tones, as well as a somewhat pastoral, rural (herbs and leather) tone that gives the aroma some serious depth. It opens with sweet raspberry and cherry tones, kissed with a light touch of oak cask. There are some dark chocolate and mint flavors playing off a bit of cranberry and some pretty strong dark stone notes. This is a subtle wine, but its very nicely complex, with an evolving, unfolding quality about it. It’s ripe and refined, and it has a very nice structure, with delicate cacao powder-like tannins. This is a very well done wine and absolutely worth trying.
