Campania de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez LZ Rioja 2013


Some initial bottle stink here and the palate seemed stretched and thin.  I moved a step closer to the sink, but a moment of patience stayed my hand.  A spark of hope then appeared with some committed swirling, and the wine's aromatics of fruit cake, currants and plums gently came to the foreground.  The palate unfurled too, proving balanced with a medium body and a pleasant impression.  Good
