Bright brown brick red color. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, tobacco and planked oak, crushed gravel, and lemon pith with a tangy, dry medium-full body and a rapid finish with leafy, earthy tannins and light oak flavor. A classic old-world Tempranillo.

Tempranillo

Tempranillo is the principal grape of Rioja, Spain's most famous red wine. The variety has beautiful red cherry, blackberry and mulberry fruit with medium-weight tannins, good acidity and complexity. it is generally aged in older oak barrels in Rioja to soften the wine.

Tempranillo is also grown in other regions of Spain, such as Ribera del Duero and La Mancha. It also produces important wines in Portugal and Argentina and is planted in countries such as Mexico, the United States and Australia.

While there are some lighter versions made for early consumption, a typical Tempranillo ages very well, anywhere from five to seven for a medium-bodied version to twenty to thirty years for a Gran Riserva Rioja. They pair well with most red meats and spicy dishes, from empanadas to game birds.
