Rioja Sierra Cantabria Tempranillo . The Tinto is 100% Tempranillo which spent 6 months in used American and French oak. Medium ruby-colored, it offers pleasant aromas of Asian spice, cranberry, and red currants. There is good material here with plenty of fruit, light tannin, and good grip. There is also a sense of elegance. It is a terrific introduction to what Rioja is all about as well as an excellent value.
