Tempra Tantrum 2008 Tempranillo Cabernet Wine Review by Billy


Nose: grapey, and maraschino cherry from the Tempranillo grape and some white pepper and cedar spiciness from the cabernet
Palate: slight spritzig. Overwhelming bitter acids and unbalanced blanching tannins make this actually unpleasant.
Finish: limp, harsh.
Overall: To quote Monty Python, "this is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding". I paid about $9 for this bottle and wish I had that money back.

Wow, bummer of a bottle. My experience with this wine wasn't nearly as bad: Tempra Tantrum 2008 Tempranillo/Cabernet.

Completely agree with the review. This wine is just awful. If you want a decent Spanish wine with good value, try Los Rochas or Tempena. Avoid this.
