Review: *** $ Vina Hermosa Tempranillo, Cosecha, Rioja, Spain, 2006 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Hermosa Rioja Tempranillo.

Original tasting and review : This is Vina Hermosa Tempranillo, Cosecha, Rioja, Spain, 2006, finished at a mere 13% alcohol.


In the glass: Medium burgundy and brick.

On the nose: Poured at  room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, oaky black fruit, aged but not to the point of senility.  From the aroma, seems like this will be round and easy.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact creamy, ripe-red plum fruit, plenty of supporting, fresh acids and light tannins.  A round experience overall.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, becoming an equally easy best value.
