Baron de Ley 2014 (Spain: Rioja)

Name Baron de Ley 2014
Varietal Tempranillo
Region Spain: Rioja
Notes "Forest floor and smoke notes frame black cherry and licorice flavors in this firm, smooth red. The polished texture and balanced structure support the fresh, harmonious character. Drink now through 2022. 5,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator)

Additional Notes

"Forced oak and modest red-fruit aromas are good enough to draw you in. This feels snappy, with cheek-puckering acidity. Tart red-fruit flavors of plum and currant are woody but honest, while the wine's initial forced oak character settles down on the finish." (Wine Enthusiast)
