The Tinto Especial Lot # 012 has a medium ruby color. The aroma of Tempranillo is prominent with bouquets of ripe berries, rose petals, herbs de Provence and black pepper. This is a medium full-bodied red wine with lively dark berry flavors layered with light wood spices, smoke, and hints of pepper. It is very well balanced on the palate with rounded flavors and well integrated fruit and spice. The texture is lush with plenty of velvety tannins and the finish has a lingering persistence.
This delicious blend is very versatile at the table. It compliments a variety of preparations of red meat, pork or poultry dishes and works well with a broad spectrum of cuisines. From roasts, mixed grills, and barbecues to Asian inspired clay pot dishes, moles, and Southwestern cuisine.
