Running with Bulls Tempranillo 2011

Many producers are planting Tempranillo in the warmer area but I think it needs a little cooler night action to retain some nice acidity freshness. The 2011 vintage played well to maintain brightness.

Running with Bulls Tempranillo 2011

Normally this wine is full bodied but this years is more medium bodied. There are lovely cola, dark cherry juice, spice and licorice notes evident with the transition of flavours attracting me the most. The wine is easy to drink and works with work well with any roasted meat. On the other side of the flavour is this fury tannin structure burning with a desire to dry and refresh my mouth. Drink now or later who cares.
