Early aromas of jelly donut, hot asphalt and leather are scattershot, but with time and airing the wine pulls itself together to show deep berry flavors, prune and a touch of burnt toast. It's a firm, serious Tempranillo, but at $33 it makes you long for the time when it was half the price and just as good, if not better.
