Shop for Spanish Wine Tempranillo

Tempranillo, a black grape, is native to the Iberian peninsula and it dominates so many of the greatest Spanish wines. It is one of the primary grapes in such regions as Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and Toro. But even then, Tempranillo is flexible enough to be grown down in some of the southern regions of Spain, like Ribera Guadiana or La Mancha.

Depending on where a Tempranillo wine comes from, it could be as full-bodied as a California Cabernet or Bordeaux, or have the delicateness and sophistication of a Burgundy. The main flavors and aromas are that of dark berries (raspberries, blackberries etc.) and violets. Tempranillo is also a great grape to use in blending. In Rioja (the "Bordeaux of Spain") the grape blends perfectly with Grenache or even Graciano. In Priorat, some winemakers blend it with Syrah, or even Cabernet.

The flexibility and variety of Tempranillo wine is astonishing. If you want some adventure in your life (and wine), grab some Spanish wine with Tempranillo and enjoy all that the Iberian peninsula can offer.

    Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black currant, licorice and Marcona almond. Its smooth tannins feel good on the palate. Opening flavors of bittersweet chocolate and mint hit the tastebuds first, followed by flavors of blackberry and raspberry that are joined by touches of vanilla and baking spice on the finish.

  13. Muga Selección Especial

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#98656

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    2018 was a cooler vintage, with a fairly long maturation, which made the wines somewhat fresher and less alcoholic, as showcased by the 2018 Selección Especial, a classical blend of the four red varieties from Rioja, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano with contained ripeness (14.05% alcohol) and good freshness. It fermented in oak casks with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barrels, 40% of them new, for 26 months. They were not very happy with the vintage and had to sort and discard, but as they didn’t produce Prado Enea, Torre Muga or Haro, those grapes went into this wine. They are reluctant about 2018, but I think it was a vintage capable of the best and the worst, and this 2018 is floral, expressive and elegant. It’s medium to full- bodied, with very fine, chalky tannins, combining power and elegance. Amazing! 187,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2021. (Luis Gutiérrez)
    JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 6/13/2022
    The 2018 Muga Selección Especial is 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, and the rest Graciano y Mazuelo. It shows the fresher style of the vintage yet has good richness in its cassis and black raspberry fruit profile as well as notes of tobacco leaf, violets, and spicy oak. Straight-up gorgeous on the palate, it shines for its purity, has ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. I’m a fan. (Jeb Dunnuck)
    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, September 9, 2022
    Fresh and dried cherries, oyster shells, spice box and dried herbs on the nose. Flint stone, too. Structured, mineral and very fresh with tight and fine-grained tannins and a medium body. Vibrant and fragrant. Lightly austere at the end. Smaller production and greater selection this year - only Rioja Reserva and Seleccion Especial made. Try from 2024.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2022
    A medium- to full-bodied red, well-knit and harmonious, showing a fine, tense frame of chalky tannins fleshed out by crushed black raspberry, balsamico, dried fig and deep notes of ground coffee, iron and smoke. Long and lively on the herbal, spiced finish. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. Drink now through 2030. 20,000 cases made, 4,500 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

  14. Psi

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#96713

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 22, 2021
    Blackberry and black-cherry aromas with lavender, cedar and hints of cloves and white pepper, following through to a medium body with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful, creamy finish. A little tight and reserved now. Another impressive PSI. Give it until 2022.
    RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Oct 2021
    The 2019 PSI combines their knowledge of the vineyards and their new winery. They learned a lot in 2018, a more heterogeneous vintage, and their sorting machine for grapes had to work a lot. 2019 was more homogeneous, an easier harvest when most people made better wine. In the winery, they invested in a simple building but top technology. They used some 10% Garnacha in the blend, which was done one year after aging the lots separately. It really reminds me of the young wines from Ribera del Duero from the early 1990s, with some aromas of orange peel, earthy and smoky (very mild) and with fine-grained tannins. It has good ripeness at 14% alcohol and integrated acidity but great balance. It showcases the style of the 2019s here, fresher than expected and still a sunny vintage, when 2018 was more crystalline. A triumph over the natural conditions of the year. They finally bottled the expected 345,000 bottles. It was bottled in July 2021.

  15. Cune Imperial Reserva

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#95880

    JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, September 22, 2020
    Extremely floral and attractive with crushed lavender, rosemary and violets to the blue fruit. Full body. Tight and integrated tannins and a lightly chewy finish. Shows depth and structure. One of the best from here in a long time. Drink in 2021, but already attention grabbing.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Deep, brilliant ruby. Cherry, cassis, vanilla and incense on the expansive nose, where a zesty mineral note adds vibrancy. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering sweet dark berry, cherry liqueur and violet pastille flavors along with hints of mocha and spicecake. Rich and ample in style but shows superb energy as well. Finishes sweet, seamless and extremely long, with lingering florality and polished, fully integrated tannins.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The prototype of red from Rioja Alta could very well be the 2016 Imperial Reserva, fine, precise and powerful. The grapes for this cuvée were picked between October 10th and 25th, and it’s a canonical blend of 85% Tempranillo and the rest Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha with 14% alcohol and balancing freshness. It fermented with their own Imperial yeasts in oak vats of different sizes and matured in French and American oak barrels for 24 months. This wine has a very defined style that should not change; it has more oak than the Asúa Reserva and is made with grapes not only from Haro but also from Torremontalvo, Villalba and Briones. 2016 was a cooler year, and the wines are fresher and balanced. This has the mushroomy touch from the old cave and plenty of tannins that are going to require powerful food and/or time in bottle. A classic among classics. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.
