Telmo Rodriguez LZ tempranillo 2010, Rioja, Spain

$28 from Prince Wine Store. A more serious Tempranillo at an attractive price, the LZ has a medium+ dark ruby colour with meaty aromas that are swirled into together with sourish red berries. A dry, full-bodied wine with high level of cleansing acidity and ripe flavours of red berries with sweet mint buds. This finishes dry, so it would be great with rare roast beef and brown sauce, or grilled sambal stingray. Drink now. 88/100.
