Running With Bulls Barossa Tempranillo 2012

A great example of a food friendly drop. I had this with Veal Saltimbocca, and with the tomato based sauce, this wine hit the spot.

Overripe cherry and sweet spice aromas. Soft cherry flavours in the mouth seemed to rush to the back. The cinnamon spice characters linger with some touches of oak. Tannins were grippy, grainy and a little drying.

Running with Bulls also has a Tempranillo made with fruit from Wrattonbully (posted in March) which when comparing the two, I much prefer.

I have seen the wine discounted below $20 which is good news for those seeking to purchase. Drink within five years.
