This Tempranillo from the Rioja region of Spain comes from the Bodegas best estates—Fuentenegra and Galdara. It is made only in exceptional years and is of modern style with attractive notes of red berries, piney green and menthol intermingled with spice. Ripe and rich, it seems to be in its prime window of drinking right now but I would expect it to cellar well for another decade. Pair this wine with duck or lamb.
