Viña Jaraba Crianza, La Mancha '15 ** $ VALUE
A touch of oak makes this tempranillo classy and complex, but still light
An important property in RdelD, intense aroma and flavor, but graceful
Great example of Tinto Fino (tempranillo), deep, intense, polished, needs big foods, great dinner wine
All of these wines can be purchased at Kenilworth Wine and Spirits.
