Campos Reales, Tempranillo, La Mancha, 2007, $8.99

| Uncategorized

This super-value has been a crowd pleaser since we first introduced it over a year ago. An unoaked Tempranillo from La Mancha, it is the perfect weight for those who only drink red and need something less ponderous for summer evenings. It can be enjoyed as a glass on its own, but also pairs nicely with grilled pizza, roasted vegetables including eggplant and fennel, and burgers.

International Wine Cellar submitted the following review for the 2007 Campos Reales. “Bright purple. Primary dark berry aromas are complemented by licorice and dark chocolate. Straightforward and a bit youthfully grapey, with sweet blackberry and cassis flavors, supple texture and a late candied floral quality. This became firmer with air but is in no way hard. Very easy to drink and a ridiculous value.”
