Abadia Retuerta Seleccion Especial, Sardon de Duero, Spain

This Tempranillo with a touch of Merlot and Cab is inky and exotic, with cherry kirsch, bitter chocolate and allspice plus a savory black olive note.  More layers will unfold with age.  In the meantime, pair with a rich Moroccan-spiced lamb tagine or olive tapenade.
