Tasting notes

Tempranillo is a varietal indigenous to Spain, and its name is derived from the Spanish word temprano, meaning early, a reference to the fact that Tempranillo often ripens weeks before its other red grape counterparts. This wine has aromas of cloves, boysenberry, and incense with rustic flavors of red and black currants and a hint of forest floor. Great acidity and a bright linear palate lead to a long, structured finish. Although this wine can be enjoyed right away, we feel great about its ageing potential, and we recommend laying it down for a future special occasion.

Enjoy this wine with roasted meats, charcuterie, and Spanish cuisine.
