Diez-Caballero Tempranillo Crianza 2004

This tempranillo needs some time to open up before drinking. When I started the first glass, I was thinking three of seven points but as it opened up it transitioned into more of the five-point area. Of course, it's always hard to tell how much of that is the wine breathing and how much is an ever-more-forgiving palate as the bottle slowly empties. For $14 at Binny's, it's middle of the pack.

Four of Seven Smile Points
(famously average)
