There's nothing I don't like about this Tempranillo from a bodega
founded just over a decade ago by a group of Spanish wine lovers. What a beauty for less than $15. It's ripe and luscious with soft tannins, a taste of cherries and a youthful lilt of acidity. This is totally pleasurable drinking from central Spain
. The grapes are organic, by the way, and even the label is printed on recycled paper. But in the end, what matters is flavor -- and this young Tempranillo has it in spades.
Pour it with grilled lamb chops or lamb sirloin, pork chops or roasted or braised duck.
