One of the grand questions about Tempranillo is how far can producers go with their oak treatment and still keep the varietal's integrity? The 2014 Barco de Piedra does a really fine job here. Yes, one does feel the wood, but the area's earth, dust and fruit still come through gloriously. Medium ruby color; red fruit and savory, grey herbs, quite good, medium depth; medium bodied, just a bit layered on the palate; earth and dust run through the flavors, very regional; medium to long finish, fairly robust in the aftertaste.
Success! Feel free to
