Telmo Rodriguez M2 de Matallana 2004

Telmo Rodriguez M2 de Matallana 2004I mentioned this in an earlier note, but I think it deserves a post on its own. These mid level wines from Telmo are really good value if you want to add some top shelf Spanish gear to your cellar.  Espessially this wine and the Gago from Toro.  

Deep red in the glass, with a purple rim.  Its Ribera straight out of the box with earthy, floral notes of violet with great cherry and mulberry fruit.  More interest is added with some smoke and creamy oak. The palate shows similar fruit with added sage, minerals and iron ore.  Loads of soft fruit tannins, the acid is a touch low.  Excellent drinking now and over the next 10 years.  93 Pts.
