A Rioja made primarily from the Tempranillo grape, this was a treat from someone else’s cellar.  Good nose of fruit that has been tempered by oak aging, giving way to classic tempranillo flavors.  Balanced and fuity on the palate with a tannic structure hiding in there somewhere.  I don’t know how much this wine costs so I cannot give any stars, but for quality, an 89 pointer in my opinion.
