Tasting- El Cortijillo Tempranillo

El-Cortijillo-Temp

Name: El Cortijillo Tempranillo

Variety: 100% Tempranillo

Region: La Mancha

Country: Spain

Year: 2014

Price: $9

Shop’s Notes: Bright purple. High-pitched red berry and floral scents display good clarity and a hint of cracked pepper. Shows a touch of jamminess to its pliant black raspberry and cherry compote flavors, with a spicy quality adding vibrancy. Finishes with good focus and no obvious tannins, leaving a sweet berry note behind.  -The Vintage Cellar

My Notes: Once again, I got kind of a foody smell. I could detect berry tones but I found the wine to be very acidic and I think this hid a lot of things.

I did not have this with food.
