The Oddbins Take

Ordinarily, Rioja is made up predominantly of Tempranillo, with a whack of Grenache adding some juicy, weighty fruit to Tempranillo’s manly, savoury flavours. But this 100% Tempranillo stunner, from the noted Finca Allende winery, shows just how well this grape can shine as a solo performer. Intense cherry in colour, it has fulsome blackberry, cranberry and wild forest fruits over the notes of oak, which is perfectly integrated and reminiscent of cedar and tobacco. Essentially, this is a bit like John Lennon after The Beatles – it works well in the band, but shows a spectacular character and originality when left to its own devices.
