La Rioja Alta, S.A.-Vina Alberdi-Tempranillo-Reserva-Spain-2005-12.5% Alcohol-$15.99-A nose of some fruit and funk, dark garnet in color.  A medium to full bodied Tempranillo with cherry, tobacco, and some vanilla, a bit disjointed and somehow hot despite low Alcohol level.   Decant to get rid of funk smell.                   NR              CR-85                Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
