I'm a big fan of Tempranillo's - especially those which have been aged. I would place this up there with the Bodegas Faustino I - another great Gran Reserva from 1996. The nose is crazy - I get the same cigar box/cedar wood as I do with the Faustino. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth with very little tannins and a sweet taste that lingers in your mouth. I paired with turkey breast and I was surprised at the great match-up with white meat. Nothing shocking here, just another great value wine from Spain. Enjoy.
