2013 Paso A Paso Tempranillo (Vinos De La Tierra De Castilla, Spain)… $10.
I go to Spain often for my pick of the month, because you just can’t beat the quality-to-price ratio of the wines that come out of this country. Vinos de la Tierra De Castilla basically indicates an everyday table wine such as France’s Vin de Pays. Located within the autonomous Castile La Mancha region of Spain, just below Madrid. For a table red, this is pretty d^*n good!
Aromas of jammy currants and dark cherries with a touch of tobacco and bark. Dark cherry fruit on the palate, with underlying tobacco and bark notes. Nice flow across the palate with structured, smooth tannins leading the way into a finish of green tobacco, currant and dried bark notes. Very interesting Tempranillo with complexity that belies the ten-dollar price tag. (B/B+)
