Running With The Bulls Wrattonbully Tempranillo 2012

"The drinker waggled his little finger at him and smiled at us with his eyes. Then he bit the stream off sharp, made a quick lift with the wine bag and lowered it down to the owner. He winked at us. The owner shook the wineskin sadly." ~ Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

It's a little like that. Easy to consume, a delight to share in a moment, even if the moment can be fleeting for it's highly consumable. Has a generous perfume with its blue and black fruits, a wee suggestion of coffee sitting in front.

Smooth, a silken scarf of a wine with a little tartness to it, accompanied by a dark, slightly dusty, twiggy, spiced up element. Good length here, a combination of a little tannin and flavour. 92 - Very Good
