Just call us suckers for Tempranillo cause we can't get enough of this. Aromas of chocolate/espresso/leather give way to a medium bodied dark cherry taste initially, then moving into a pleasant smokiness and then a really enjoyable long finish. Must...get...more.
Torres Ribera del Duero Celeste is consistently rated 89-90 in Wine Spectator and routinely sells for between $15 and $24 outside of PA. There are 24 bottles left of the 2007 at 12th and Chestnut but you are taking your chances because it's been very warm in that store recently. Better to try Bryn Mawr which has 34 bottles.

"Cherry coloured. Intense nose. With floral and ripe red fruit notes, accompanied by toasting notes. A rounded attack, pleasant and unctuous, with smooth tannins. Long, elegant finish. Owing to its fruity and tannic characteristics, this wine pairs well with a great variety of meat dishes."
