Out of storage and amazing! Velvety smooth full bodied Tempranillo. Dark ruby red. Plum, raisin, leather, oak, and alcohol. Could still easily age up to another 3yrs. Enjoyed with grilled beef skewers. My love affair with this Spanish grape continues.
Castillo Labastida Reserva Tempranillo 2004, D.O.C.A., Rioja, Spain: Vintages Wine Panel: Spanish wines may just offer the best value-for-money in all of Europe. This Reserva from Rioja, the heart of Spain’s winemaking culture, is mellowed enough by its extended ageing to enjoy now, but it will also reward cellaring for another decade. My note: This wine is made from the Tempranillo grape and was matured for 16 months in French and American oak. Lovely notes of black cherry, leather, violets and cigar box. More than flavor, this wine excels in texture: supple, soft and caressing: it’s spectacular. Long finish. Drink: 2009-2012. 95125 14% XD 750 mL $23.95 Score: 90/100. November 21, 2009 Full Review
