10 Becker Tempranillo ($25) ☹ ☹

The first taste from a decanted bottle nearly knocks you socks off, the nose is almost non existant and struggle to reveal much in the way of fruit. Eventually I got a hint of leather and plums. The taste and finish are both short, the tannins overpower the fruit by a long way and really this is one to avoid.
