Bodegas Matarromera's entry level 2009 Melior is made up of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 6 months in American oak. Cedar, Asian spices, incense, violets, and black cherry inform the nose of this savory, plush, easygoing red. It already reveals a bit of complexity and has enough stuffing to blossom for another 1-2 years but there is no need to delay gratification.

89 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue # 195 - Jun 2011)

Big and dark, with firm black cherry and blackberry aromas. Offers size, structure and crispness in the mouth, with driving, muscled flavors of cherry, black plum and integrated oak. Spicy and dry on the back end, with more than a hint of vanilla.
