Albero 2009 Tempranillo Barrica
Region: Utiel-Requena DO > Spain
Purchased @: Trader Joe’s
Clear, bright, ruby red color. Cherry, strawberry, baking spice on the nose. Good & Plenty sitting in a bowl across the table. Some oak aromas. Dry, medium-low tannin, low acidity, light body. Red fruit with some subtle spices and savory anise on the palate. Finish is mossy, but very short. Suggest opening the bottle, pouring off a glass, and trying it in 30 minutes. Otherwise, pass.
