Tasting notes: 2002 Torres Coronas Tempranillo

Nose: lots of ripe blackberry, plum & some cassis, a little bit musty & funky.
Palate: rich casis with some earthy notes in the background, not as much as you would expect (or hope for) from a Tempranillo because it is a blend of 86% Tempranillo & 14% Cabernet Sauvignon. Some cedar chips are there too. There is some vanilla in the lasting finish.

I had this with mole fajitas & it changed into a really funky beast. The fajitas were loaded with smoked hab powder, cumin & cocoa, among other things... The flavor profiles did some crazy shape-shifting. Like in Terminator 2, the cop that could melt into the shiny liquid metal goo. "Have you seen this boy?"
