La Rioja, Red Wine, Spain, Tempranillo


Had this over the course of the last two evenings. Quite a pretty wine. Medium bodied. Plum and cherry fruit with earth, spice and some dill pickle (which is likely from the American oak). This is a very nice QPR. To me, although this will probably cellar for a decade longer and improve, this is a great wine to drink now.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
