Bodega Cyan 2005 Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) Red Wine, $12.99-$15.99, 89+ points, poured core black transitioning to blood-red, and finally orange/red at the clear wine ring.
The nose was a lovely coffee, tobacco, black olives, with hints of rose, bourbon, and plum.
Full-bodied, good acidity, mild soft tannin, and a smoked bacon flavor accentuating those of the nose were complex, balanced, and quite good.
Finished long on hot spice, a warm 14.5% alcohol, and a hint of butterscotch.
Paired perfectly with my Australian spiced lamb rib-chops.
