2013 Buenas Tempranillo, Cosecheros y Criadores

Road wine, this 2013 Buenas Tempranillo, and one that I had over the last several nights while fighting off the influences of Old Man Winter. All week we’ve been saddled with 20-degree temperatures, and no amount of gloves, hats, and scarves can keep you as warm as a good bottle of wine.

2013 Buenas Tempranillo, Cosecheros y Criadores

2013 Buenas Tempranillo, Cosecheros y Criadores, Spain.

The simple math? Yes, “buenas” means the beginning of an enjoyable evening between family and friends, as the winemakers Cosecheros y Criadores will tell you. And no, none of that happened on this occasion. I’m flying solo, and didn’t have this Tempranillo with even a hint of real adult food so no pairing recommendations for you readers.

That being said, this 2013 wasn’t all bad for a bargain Spanish red. A little underdeveloped in taste, and I’m quite certain I didn’t let it breathe sufficiently. There is definitely some cherry, a light sprinkling of spices, and a slightly tannic finish to this wine.

I won’t be purchasing another of the 2013 Buenas Tempranillo but mention my appreciation to Cosecheros y Criadores for making sure I stayed warm during this busy week of travel.
