Fine Wine > Still > Tempranillo > 90-92 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.

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..
