TASTING NOTES

The Tinto Especial ~ Tempranillo Lot # 013 has a vibrant, deep berry/purple color. This Tempranillo expresses a bouquet of ripe berries and light sandalwood. This is a medium full-bodied red wine with dark berry flavors layered with light wood spices, and hints of black 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 that begs for another sip.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

This Tempranillo 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
