Smart shoppers should be able to find this for well below the sky-scraping suggested price, and what a fabulous gift it would make. It's inky and tight, with spicy oak atop blackberry fruit. It's the epitome of a tight, young Tempranillo wine, and the finish is downright peppery. The tannins are fairly monstrous now, indicating that it could benefit from five or more years of aging.
