Castillo Monjardin Tempranillo Clasico 2012

I don't know why this is called a "clasico" as, so far as I know, this is the only tempranillo produced by this bodega, but be that as it may, this very young red from the foothills of the Pyrennees in Navarre, albeit on the light side and definitely fruit forward, is a very pleasant wine with cherry and plum  elements,  and, at $7.99, a very nice buy.I should think it would age well in the bottle for at least another two years.
