Wine Review - Dualista Tinto Roble 2008

The second bottle of wine that I tried from my WSJ Wine shipment was a Tempranillo from Spain -- Dualista Tinto Roble 2008.  Tempranillo is Spain's best known grape variety, although it is widely grown all over the world. 

The description of the bottle included in my case as described on WSJ Wine's website:
Bright purple-red in the glass.  Aromas of rich cherry and bright fruit with a hint of licorice.  Juicy red currant on the palate with hints of subtle nutmeg and toasty vanilla oak.  Silky tannins and a long finish.   13.5% vol.

WSJwine Item #0343508 $14.99/bottle

My opinion - Very good wine.  Smooth with a medium finish.  Very drinkable.

Suggested food pairings:

Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime
Prosciutto and Fontina Stuffed Chicken Breast
Veal Saltimbocca
