François Lurton 2008 El Albar Lurton Barricas Tinta de Toro (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León)

Impressive for a 2008 Tempranillo. This opens with aromas of balsam wood, spice, blackberry and plum. The feel is grippy and intense, with notes of roasted berry, black olive, leather and a mildly-salty flavor. It finishes meaty, lightly herbal and slightly salinic, with a firm feel. Drink now through 2014. Michael Schachner
