*Baron Ladron de Guevara Crianza 2007
The last of the wines that I got from the on line sale, this red may also well be the best. A really zesty Rioja(90% Tempranillo), aged for two years in oak, it opens up with a veritable explosion of cherry and blueberry flavors, tempered by soft tannins and a licorice/black pepper edge. An excellent wine, but you must let it breathe properly for it to show off its best. Well worth the on line price of $11.99.
