Finca Del Viso Tempranillo – Bodegas Fernando Castro

In order of the TAPAS tasting this coming weekend, I decided to blog a tempranillo.   Tempranillo is a popular grape in Spain but more and more grape growers in the US are starting to plant tempranillo.   Well, the one I decided to blog is from Spain.   The Finca Del Viso smells like sweet raspberries with notes of spice.    The mouthfeel is definitely light – like berry juice mixed with water, and the finish is lightweight for sure.   I’ve had some great tempranillo but this wine wasn’t very exciting.   I liked the nose but the finish died quickly and I was also looking for a bit more oomph on the midpalate.
