Baron de Chirel Reserva / Rioja Spain / Tempranillo / Marques de Riscal: Full body, spice. Blackcurrent, ripe plum, tobacco. In the early 2000’s I did not have a very high opinion of Spanish wines. This is the one that opened my eyes and blew me away, so rich, smooth, and elegant. This is a very easy entry into Spanish wines, pick one up at the duty free when you are flying back from Spain. Excellent with grilled meats.
