Thanks for the TNs on the Tempranillo. I fell in love with this grape 35 years ago (and Graciano).
I supect the Monastrell aka Mourvèdre (and down this way as Mataro) would explain why the hugeness in the Solenera, it can be almost too big at times. I reckon a better cepage than Merlot for north of Caneros. ¿Que?
