Medium-bodied red wine from Tempranillo, Spain's signature grape. Dark blue-red colour. Nose with red cherries, vanilla- and herbal tones. Palate: red cherry, spicy. Tannins: yes, little firm, but still niiice. Elegantly simple. Drink now.
My guess: some Cabernet Sauvignon in this bottle, too.

I would love to try their higher class wines!
Food: dark meat, chewy meat, but not too spicy food, please. We enjoyed it with filet mignon, topped with home-made herb-butter, served with oven-roasted, rosemary spiced carrots and red beets. A nice Saturday it was.
Not the smallest bodega: ca 120 ha, with some vines over 25 years old, even 60 plus. The area is situated at 800 m altitude. Hot days, cold nights give very good results for grapes growing here. Check the website: http://www.vinapedrosa.com/english/inicio.htm
