Finca Sobreño Tempranillo 2014

A new wine in the Vintage House portfolio, this is an organic Tempranillo from a Spanish winery established in 1998.

The cork smelt of pine and pine needles - I wasn't sure of what was coming next.

Quite a dense wine, oak is on the heavy side. Red fruits try to nudge their way forward without luck. Peppery spice clings to an abrasive mid palate. After being open for a few hours it didn't settle all that much. 

It lands on these shores for $20, but there's a few others I'd lean to given the choice at this price point.

86/100

RRP: $20
