Moralia Tempranillo

VT de Castilla, Spain (100% Tempranillo) 750ml This 100% tempranillo is a balanced and well structured red which expresses ripe berry fruits and soft earthy tannins. RECENT REVIEWS Jammy berry aromas are earthy but a little flat. In the mouth, this is plump, jammy and doesn’t have a lot of spine. Flavors of baked black fruits and toast finish mellow, earthy and soft. Drink this ripe, warm-climate wine now. — 87 POINTS, Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast 2/1/2014 Item MO02.
