Fine Wine > Still > Tempranillo > Spain

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.

"The entry-level 2009 Pruno is predominantly Tempranillo with dollops of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. Opaque purple in color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of earthy minerality, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Velvety-textured,..

Juan Manuel Burgos Avan Concentracion Ribera del Duero 2010 750ml
|   IWC: 93   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Youthful violet color. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and vanillin oak are complicated by star anise and potpourri. Enters with powerful dark fruit flavors and gains vivacity in the mid-palate, picking up notes of candied raspberry and spicecake. Densely packed but suave,..

Cellar/Tasting Notes
The 2010 Psi has a more tightly wound bouquet than the 2009 with fresh blackberry, blueberry and vanilla essence that is well defined and harmonious.

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild Vega Sicilia Macan Clasico Rioja 2009 750ml
|   WA: 92   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"The 2009 Macan Clasico is the second wine in the Bordeaux sense, even though the name might be rather confusing and some people might think this is the superior cuvee. It's clearly a more accessible wine than its sibling, and that's intentional. Bright ruby-colored, with some red fruit and lactic..

Cellar/Tasting Notes
"The 2008 Pintia has a fragrant bouquet with scents of dark plum, mulberry and fresh cherry, the new oak neatly folded into the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, silky smooth entry. The tannins here are very fine with dark cherries, a touch of sloe and spices that become..

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild Vega Sicilia Macan Rioja 2009 750ml
|   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. Dense with licorice and some prune flavors, it is spicy and balsamic as well as tighter and more backward. They told me they don't like green aromas, but they also..
