2009 Campillo, Gran Reserva, Tempranillo, Rioja, Spain

This classically styled Gran Reserva offers big and bold oak. Deep black in color with a little fruit on the nose, the oak predominates and overwhelms any fruit in the glass.  Explosive and tannic in the mouth with lots of acid. After sitting for a long while in the decanter, the fruit finally showed up as one would expect in a Rioja.
