Wine of the Week: Marques de Riscal Tempranillo 2006


Spain is the sleeping giant of the wine world, with more than 5,500 wineries and the most grape acreage planted. But it falls behind France and Italy in terms of production and still suffers from the perception that its wine is of poor quality.

That's certainly not the case with this red wine from the Rioja region in northern Spain. It's made with 100 percent tempranillo - the national grape of Spain - by one of the oldest wineries in the Rioja region.

Very aromatic with notes of spice and earth, this is a dry wine laced with red fruit flavors and a long, lingering finish.

Sherry: "Dry, peppery cherry with a hint of red licorice." 3-1/2 stars

Chris: "Raspberry, cherry and plum, layered in a dry, cocoa finish." 3-1/2 stars

Available locally for about $8.

Coming next week: Kitchen Sink White
