Spanish or Australian Reds? Both Good with Roast Lamb

We had our daughter and her husband around for a meal and enjoyed a very good Roast Leg of Lamb from Tesco.  We opened a bottle of Palacio de Verano Rioja 2008, followed by a Talking Heads Shiraz/Cabernet 2010 that our daughter had brought with her.  Both the wines are from Sunday Times Wine Club.  The first one was a Spanish red, 100% Tempranillo with smooth, red fruits and vanilla. We all thought it was a fine match with the lamb.  The second bottle was a red from Australia.  Fruit-rich and ripe.  Not as subtle as the Rioja, but very easy to drink with the lamb.
