Fine Wine > Red > Tempranillo > Spain > Rioja > 92-95 Pts

Tempranillo is the staple grape of Rioja -- in the words of The Oxford Companion to Wine, "the Cabernet Sauvignon of Spain." To create greatness, Tempranillo is nearly always blended, usually with Garnacha (aka Grenache) and/or Carignan. Tempranillo is fast ripening, rather tannic and, unlike Cabernet Sauvignon, not that aromatic. It is rarely sold as a stand-alone varietal.

|   WA: 93   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"The 2009 Macan has aromas of black rather than red fruit, ripe and intense blackberries with some floral notes developing with time.
