Benjamin Romeo 'Contador' Tempranillo 2008

Bright crimson in colour. Notes of Camphor and Sandalwood together with tarry red and black fruits. A rich flavoursome and savoury palate - medium to full bodied - a fleeting tobacco note. Firm yet silky tannins. Very polished. One of the best Tempranillos (actually 86% Tempranillo and 14% Garnacha) I’ve ever had - up there with Vega Sicilia. Shows the versatility of the Tempranillo grape and its suitability to the warm climes of Spain. One of the 1001 Wines. 98 points from Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate. — 5 days ago

I will keep an eye out for more of his wines. The Contador was brilliant.

Torre Muga Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014

Last vintage was ‘11, there were no ‘12 or ‘13, tried a few ‘14’s. Deep Ruby a blend 70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano & 10% Mazuelo, aged new French oak for 15 months (‘11 was 24 mos). Full red fruit aromas with floral, oak & pepper spice. On palate ripe red fruit flavors, complex with layers of fruit & spice, noting espresso, cacao & licorice. Tannins are beginning to soften. Well balanced, long finish ending with fruit, spice and oak. Decant or let sit in the cellar for a while. Nice! — a year ago

La Rioja Alta

Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo Blend 2012

An excellent expression of traditional Rioja! Tempranillo (80%) and Garnacha (20%) blend. Aromas of rose petals, leather and dark fruit. Pallet is full of plum, raspberry, cherry cola, balsamic vinegar and spices. Hint of orange peel. Soft/silky/dusty tannins, elegant balance and a long memorable finish. Beautiful! Even better the second day. Thank you for sharing Keith S. — 2 months ago

Gran Selección Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2015

Tempranillo (85%) and Graciano (15%) Rioja blend. Deep ruby color. Nose of dried red berries, leather and baking spices. Plums and black fruit flavors with earthy notes of chocolate and vanilla. A bit of oak on the spicy finish. Quite nice. Thanks to Keith S. For serving this one. — 2 years ago

Macán Clásico Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Very dry, especially for a Spanish red, to the point where it was hard to identify flavors. Still enjoyable, but I like other Spanish better. — a month ago

Macán Rioja Tempranillo 2012

Fruity aroma with density. Robust structure with enough tanning, not just fruity. Also with Spiciness. This is from the beginning. It can be stored for more years. But now is ok. It has depth. That should become silky later. At least one hour. Tempranillo with Cabernet Sauvignon? No just Tempranillo. Still changing in 1.5 hours. A bit dry? Not makes me just feel dry but enjoy showing up various fruits in turn. With herb. Cheese matched with this wine.
