Bodegas Ercavio Tempranillo Roble 2006

  • Area: Spain, Mesa deOcana, Toledo
  • Grape: Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black 92, Dilettante 91, Nwjr 90
Description: This purple beauty was aged for 6 months in oak. Lush aromas of blueberry, blackberry, spice and vanilla pamper the nose. Loads of ripe fruit make up the attack and it's soft and juicy in the mouth. Bright and happy flavors of blueberry, dark fruits, spice box, vanilla and a hint of moss dance across the tongue. The finish is incredibly long and oh so dry. This one should evolve in 2-3 years. We see no point in waiting. Just decant it for a few minutes and viola; instant age.

Price: $10
Great wine for a tenner.
