Rioja Vega S. A. Tempranillo Blend Rioja Crianza 2009
darker, funkier tempranillo with peppers, mushrooms characteristics combined with baked berry fruit, a little funky which I enjoy
Good balance of fruit, minerality, earth, and spice. Blackberry/blueberry/plum/rhubarb, some dark chocolate and toasty vanilla. Cola spices. Ole!
Rich pepper in the taste. Be careful because if you dont bob and weave away from this finish it may knock you out. Stiff and straight at you. Medium tannins. Nose is slightly flamboyant with notes of cigar and a bit ashy with an overtone of sexy black fruit.
The nose extends to strawberries, raspberries combined with black pepper and little nuances of hot spices. the palate has a light acidity, delicate in nature with nice red fruit components, and the raspberry and black pepper notes are prevalent as well carrying throughout
Stinky barnyard nose that follows thru into the taste, lots of earth, both obscure the fruit flavors, seemed a bit flabby lacking in both acidity and tannins. A definite pass.
smoky but light. drank at ramblas.
Two and a half glasses
