El Nino Tempranillo 2008
Fifteen months on oak has imparted some flavour onto the palate, but nothing too over powering or dominant. Medium bodied and deceptive from inspection led to raspberry flavours, along with cherries. The distinctive spice of Tempranillo made an appearance. Patches of undergowth led to a finish that acceptable.
A wine that asked many questions and kept me intrigued throughout.
For a relatively easy entry into the world of Tempranillo, this is not a bad place to get started.
