Señorío de P.Peciña Cosecha 2006

a first time for the baldwinegeek with this blend. i couldn't find a lot of info about it and the label told me next to nothing, but the blend seems to be primarily tempranillo with a little garnacha and graciano. interesting nose of black cherry, dark chocolate and a hint of licorice and spice. maybe a little bay leaf??? on the palate, the currant and pepper come through. medium tannins and a spicy finish. hints of leather and a cherry cordial flavor. i will revisit this one after it sits out a bit to see if it opens up a little more. it is a little tight at first taste. it opened up a bit more after a while in the glass. more of the leather and some hints of vanilla came through. overall, a very nice red for the nice price of about $12.
