Review: 2005 Campo Viejo Reserva Tempranillo

This 2005 Rioja starts out with a tannic backbone that opens up in short order to reveal a surprisingly easy-drinking wine. Aromas of smoke and charcoal on the nose are mere wisps in the glass, with the body becoming superbly jammy, with fresh raspberry and strawberry fruit on the palate. Low alcohol (13.5% per the label) makes it all go down a bit too easily. Readily available at an absurd price.
