Bodegas Castejón 2001 Viña Rey Tempranillo (Madrid)

While there are nice aromas of red and black plums on the nose, the wine seems to take the "70 Barrels" designation a little literally—it seems more an indication of the amount of char and wood that the wine shows than a mark of a limited production. Burned caramel flavors overshadow the red fruit; dry tannins and some charred oak round out the finish. ***PLEASE RECHECK PRICE. THE ENTRY DIDN'T HAVE "70 BARRICAS" DESIGNATION WHEN I FOUND IT; I ADDED IT BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THE '01 TEMPRANILLO AND THE '01 '70 BARRICAS' ARE TWO DIFFERENT WINES.
