Campos Reales Tempranillo 2007 wine review by (PB)
This $8 Spanish varietal is hefty with nice dark blackcherry hue and a bouquet that is jammy with rich aromas of black berries, and plum and black cherry as well and maybe some pomegranite too.
Palate is robust with baked bread, fruit, rich mid palate and even if a bit harsh, this tastes pretty good and at this price seems a nice value on opening. We'll see what happens with a some air.
With a little breathing there is just more of the same with a touch of cinnamon and pepper finiahing with a pleasant fruitiness so raise a glass!
