2015 Brecon Tempranillo Templeton Gap District

First off let me say that I have no expertise in Spanish varietals. What is Tempranillo "supposed" to taste like? I have no idea. Here's what I do know. This is a lovely, flat out delicious wine. Drink it over the next three or four years, I don't think it will age for a long time, but who cares?

Ok, the details. Ripe, plummy nose with a hint of anise. Just lovely, cherry and plum fruit, a bit darker than I might have expected, but it just adds a bit of character. Soft, round tannins and nice acidity which allows it to pair nicely with grilled ribeye steaks. The finish carries the fruit profile forward with a bit of spice and the tannins become a bit finer, dustier. Just a gulp-able wine. Profound? No, but gosh darn (old Ohio expression) pleasant to drink. Brecon was another of Ken Zinns' recommendations from our trip back in October. "B+" but it seems better than that while it's in my glass.
