Alvear 2015 ALANGE

The 2015 Alange Tempranillo saw a brief 4 months in French and American oak and comes out of the bottle ready to play. A rich but not fully opaque purple colour, it spills out sweetly perfumed and herbal-tinged aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, cherry Halls, balsamic vinegar and Fisherman’s Friend. The oak’s light touch is more prevalent on the lush, modern palate, as vanilla and malted chocolate round out a tangy red fruit core tinged by pomegranate brightness. It lives up to its all-caps label by being right in your face from the first sip, bold and plush, but its subtle dusty tannins kick in on the back end to keep the peace. Right now it comes across as a touch put together and unsettled, but that should be aided by a little more time in bottle; it remains easy delicious flavour for a wallet-friendly price. Enjoy with grilled red meats and chicken, stews, and hard cheeses.
