Gladium Tempranillo Crianze 2008

Jay Miller, on Robert Parker Jr.’s website, gave this wine a score of 90, but he did not supply a written review. (www.erobertparker. com, Feb. 2008) This 100% Tempranillo from La Mancha displays the great strides in winemaking this large region has made. Fruit-forward, round and soft, there’s just the right amount of acid and tannin to bring harmony and balance to this tasty red. Try it with grilled steaks, gourmet burgers, or chorizo sausages.

Big, dark and bold, with smoky aromas of bacon and blackberry. The palate is firm and tannic, with wild berry flavors and weight that transitions into herbs, spice and licorice on the finish. A big wine that rounds together well
