I love a good Tempranillo...and this is one (although it's actually only 90%). I would give this a bit of air before drinking. This is very much tobacco to the nose. Once it hits the tongue, you get a good feel for the tobacco and spice, with a taste of cinnamon, a bit of leather, perhaps round, long earthy finish. This is one of the very best Tempranillo/Rioja's I have had in a very long time - I will buy, and buy, and buy again! Pair with hearty foods, lamb, beef, game.
