** $ Eguren Tempranillo, 2007, Castilla, Spain - Wine Review and Rating

This tasting was conducted at Eno, a wine and cheese and chocolate tasting restaurant that is based in about half-a-dozen locations across North America. The concept is fairly unique: you build your own pairings of wine, cheese and/or chocolate tastings from a wide assortment. In the case of wines, some 300 to 500 labels are said to be available at different times. In this case, we tasted on North Michigan Avenue in Chicago IL.

By way of background:
The Eguren Tempranillo, 2007, hails from Castilla, Spain, and is finished in a lighter style.

In the glass: Mid-red.

On the nose: A mild, beaujolais-style aroma.

On the palate: Light pepper notes hit first, then acids help the flavors climb.

And the finish: Fast!

In summary: Two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.

  1. This wine is AWFUL. The distributor rates it high, a ridiculous "88". It's thin and weak with a bitter taste. It's not fit for salad vinegar. Be careful of phony ratings from the socalled "International Wine Cellars".

  2. I love this wine. It is a great value...a serious wine for the price. Great with manchego cheese.
