2009 Gramercy Cellars "Inigo Montoya" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo

SKU #1086837 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tempranillo seems to be gaining a toehold in eastern Washington and there now is sufficient evidence that it can turn out well when farmed correctly and made by talented people. Gramercy’s offering, the 2009 Tempranillo Inigo Montoya is one of the better ones. Exotic spices, tobacco, truffle, violets, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a savory, elegant, nicely proportioned, intensely flavored wine. This lengthy effort has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2024. Gramercy Cellars was started by Master Sommelier Greg Harrington in 2005. As these wines attest, he is not resting on his laurels.  (2/2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This has a dark core of smoke and espresso, wrapped around clean red fruits and moderate acidity. Fine structure and some depth, with a real chance to improve in the cellar for another 6-8 years  (9/2011)

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark red. Musky, complex nose melds cherry, raspberry confit, meat, flowers and spicy oak. Juicy, leanish and penetrating, with brisk acidity giving a firm edge to the flavors of sweet red fruit preserves, chocolate and tree bark. Finishes with dusty, building tannins and lingering spicy wood notes.  (11/2011)
