I ended up taking this wine into a wine class I teach for those with a more sophisticated palate ... I told them it was a single grape varietal - some thought it old, but no one thought it 15 years old (2006 was the closest guess) ... though someone did nail the country and grape variety: 100% Tempranillo from Spain (Rioja) - though the wine is from La Mancha. The rest of the vinification goes something like this: 12 months in oak barrels and 24 months of bottle age before release. Aromas started out earthy and musty (typical for a wine in bottle this long) with a pruny vegetal note that sooner rather than later began to reveal dried strawberry compote. And while the palate was earthy there were other aspects to it that were interesting, if you were willing to give it a chance: dried sour cherry with a hint of fig; the acidity was also up to par along with a core that showed lots of woodsy notes. My final note on the wine read: "This wine will not set the world on fire, but it is quite drinkable the longer it sits in glass the better it gets" (I only had it in glass about an hour before I drank the rest) ... I would definitely not want to hold this wine any longer cause it ain't getting any better. but it sure was a great experiment that paid off handsomely.

Spicy, fairly complex. Maybe a little too spicy for me. Still seems pretty young.

High neck fill. Perfect capsule and cork. Decanted and served. Clear deep dark blood-ruby. Lovely bouquet of crushed cranberries, red currants, leather, wood and dry earth. Similar on the palate -- pleasantly tart and mouthwatering. Bouquet and palate steadily improved over 90 minutes. Not especially nuanced or complex, but a beautiful example of this varietal.

A medium to dark rose. Nose of tart cherries and honeydew melon. The flavors from the nose carry over to the palate. No noticeable sweetness. Good character. Very pleasant and refreshing on a hot summer day.

This is a good wine to learn about Spain's wine history, but that is it. In fact, in these years, they were using a lot of oak... too much of it. It was not tasting the tempranillo at all: just oak, and a lot of it. It was ok, but you have to like oak to like it.

After rereading my previous tasting note about this wine, I was wondering if I opened the same wine? I'll never know, but I am more confident in this one!

Rating explained:
-> 80 - 84 [ *** ] (Good wine worth trying)

Nice nose of cherry & raspberry. The palate has a bit of fruit & mostly a dry woody taste. Pretty thin underneath, and not nearly as good as the 2004 vintage of this wine. It's okay for the price, but nothing special. Drink now if you've got it.

Really good wine for the price. Some mature smell and still a good and lively tempranillo wine!

You will get a pretty good wine for your bucks (about 17$ for 1998 wine).

This wine is very ... ok. Nothing offensive, but nothing especially outstanding either. For $8-12 it certainly is a good value as an everyday, won't-offend-even-wine-snobs-at-dinner wine, but if you're looking for a glass to really savor and enjoy this is not it.

Suprisingly nice tempranillo for $10. Crushed berries and a bit of tosty oak on the nose wile the palate was smooth and brought out more fruit than a typical tempranillo. The finish was not quite up to par with more opulent wines, never the less it is very nice, and a great value.

What a wine! I've never had a 2004 this cheap that was a really good wine. Oak and red fruits on the nose. Blueberry and blackberry fruits to taste. Sturdy tannins and very quaffable. Had it with hummus, le saucissons, and hard ewe's milk Spanish cheese. So good.

Best of a limited hotel selection.
No idea how long the bottle had been open, but needed more time to air. Slight jamminess, strong black fruits including powerful blackcurrant.

Nicely aromatic from when first poured. A nice tempranillo, good balance, smooth. A different flavor aroma profile than common variatals, but very enjoyable once you get used to it. A bit softer on day 2, I think it is at peak. Very good 87+.

Really big nose of black fruits, including cassis. Very spicy
initially--red and yellow peppers. Tannins are firm--still seems like
a young wine.
Day 2: Spices tamed. Nice wine. 88.
