Viña Ijalba Livor 2012 Tempranillo

I stopped by Domaine LA a few weeks ago and a bottle of Viña Ijalba Livor Tempranillo caught my eye.  To be honest, I have spent so much time drinking wines from France, Italy, and California lately that I have been skipping over Spain almost entirely.  This bottle turned out to be a great, everyday find and I am glad I strayed away from my normal routine!

Technical Stuff

100% Tempranillo from the Rioja region of Spain.  Organically farmed.  13% alcohol and a retail price of around $10.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of bright cherries and spice are followed with straightforward tastes of juicy, red fruit and hints of herbs.  The finish is spicy and the acidity is balanced.  A terrific mid-week wine that pairs really well with lamb or pork!
