If you like full-flavored, lusty Tempranillos, Viñas del Cenit in western Zamora is a reliable source. This has floral berry aromas, a saturated palate with wall to wall tannins, and baked black-fruit flavors that push up towards maximum ripeness. A staunch, jammy, tannic red made to with meat off the grill.
