Natalie's Review

Artesa Reserve Tempranillo 2005, Alexander Valley, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: Old World meets New World here. This smooth, medium- to full-bodied California Tempranillo is loaded with flavours of ripe dark fruit, wood smoke, tar, and crisp cherry on the mid-palate, marked by a good brace of acidity on the long dry finish. A fine complement for a variety of smoked meats and grilled vegetables. My note: Different in a good way: savoury bacon and meaty notes overlaid with purple plums. Now stay with me, it’s delicious. Spices and a supple velvet texture. Why not try just one bottle at least? 67272 13.80% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 90/100. May 29, 2010  Full Review
