If you like the malbec wines coming out of Argentina, you should try Spanish Tempranillo. Both are deeply flavored and earthy, with touches of cocoa, vanilla, and spice, and both have great structure. Malbec was orignally one of the six red blending grapes of Bordeaux, but in warmer climates like Argentina's wine made from it tends to be fuller body and more lush.
Wines made from Spanish tempranillo are labeled by where they come from - Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro, and so on. Like malbec, modern versions of these wines are rich and smooth. Often both Argentinean malbec and Spanish tempranillo-based wines possess an endearing rustic charm thats's worth trying, especially if it's a cold fall night and there's a roast in the oven.
I have yet to open the Trapiche malbec but i did try San Ramon Tempranillo last night and will post the tasting notes under the Wine Reviews section. Its a must love one!
