This overripe La Mancha based red has very little in common with the more often seen tempranillos of Rioja and Ribera...

I picked up this wine because I like Tempranillo, the label is interesting & it had a little tag with a Parker rating of 90. I am perhaps being too harsh at 75, but 75 says average & that is what I felt it was, plus Wine Align does not allow me to plug in 78/79. There is nothing wrong with it BUT it does not have good typicity and was not what I was expecting based on the label notes. It is overripe, chocolatey and candied in nature. Lovers of full-bodied jammy wines will be happy at $13.95 but I wanted a leaner, more interesting Tempranillo.
