In Spain’s Ribera del Duero region, cool
nights produce vivid red, elegant red wines,
such as this cherry-inflected reserva.
What You Need To Know
Tempranillo, the grape responsible
for Spain’s greatest red wines, may not be as familiar to
Americans as Cabernet or Merlot, but it should be. The dominant
grape of Spain’s premier red wine regions, Rioja and Ribera del
Duero, it makes delicious, medium- to full-bodied reds that range
from earthy, old-school bottlings to flashy, powerful wines
brimming with black-fruit flavors. With its deep red cherry fruit
and velvety tannins, this example from Bodegas Tamaral leans
toward the modern end of Tempranillo’s style spectrum, though it
maintains a classic sense of balance. It comes from Tamaral’s
oldest vines (some of them about a century old) and spent two
years mellowing in oak barrels.
Raspberry, cherry and
orange peel notes.
Bold, vibrant red cherry
flavors are smooth and deep.
Decant and serve at cellar
should be cool to the touch.
