Nova Tempranillo 2003 wine review by (PB)

This *Crianza wine has a purple garnet hue with robust, thick aromas of dark ripe berry and plum mixture with some hints of spice and bread with slight tinge of pepper.

Palate--over ripe fruit with intense, heavy texture with tannic foundation and a sweet underlayer of dark chocolate--wow! With some air, another layer of sweet cherry emerges.

This is a Ribera Del Douro where values are abundant and this is one at $10. Raise a glass today!

(*"Crianza" means the wine has spent one year in oak aging.)
