Navarro Marco Real Tempranillo 2005

This big red Tempranillo from the Navarro region of Spain has deep red colors, and strong meaty aromas with strawberries, dried cherries and earthtones. A bit high on the acidity, with flavors of V8 juice, raspberry, spice, dried herbs and leather.

Finish is very dry, with strong tannins, 14% alcohol content and $9.99/bottle in NYC. A bit tight when first opened, next day a little better, drank this on it's own, might be better with food like a roast chicken dish.
