2017 Mayford Tempranillo – 95 Points
Another ripping Tempranillo from Mayford.
The Mayford reds always creep up on me. I start out liking them and end up loving them. This is bold, ripe and forward at first, a little bombastic even, which is all very well but it had me thinking 92-93 if you know what I mean. And then. As I sat with the wine its motor really started to purr, the undercarriage, the drifts of herbs, cloves and smoky oak, the rumble of licoricey tannin. It hits but then it spreads. The final impression is one of completeness and of command. You can drink it now, it has it all going on. But boy does this have a future.
