Medium black violet color. Jammy aromas and flavors of raspberry pie filling, blackberry jam, cola, vanilla gelato, and black pepper with a supple, crisp, fruity sweet medium body and a sleek, medium-length finish that shows overtones of marinated roasted beets and nutmeg. A hugely fruity, youthful Tempranillo with gobs of berry notes that will please Zinfandel fans.

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.
