2003 Ramon Bilbao Tempranillo Rioja

Let's see, I had some spicy food (enchiladas) with this wine tonight, which made it difficult to pick out the aromas and flavors.

Aromas — Some tannins, oak, some cherry
Mouth — Really tannic and dry, some chocolate, and plum. Light to medium bodied. Sticks around for a good minute or so.

Tasting sheet from the label:

"Bright-ruby color with aromas of ripe wild backberries and red currants. Nuances of vanilla, pepper, and laurel give the wine a pleasing complexity. The palate shows incredible balance and a medium-long finish.
