2014 Reserve Tempranillo

The historic Spanish variety Tempranillo has found a successful home in the west side vineyards of Paso Robles. Like its home in the Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions of Spain, Paso Robles offers hot summer days, cool nights and little rainfall. Our 2014 Tempranillo tempts you with beautifully layered fruit, exotic spice highlights, and a long complex finish. It never fails to amaze with its affinity toward a wide variety of foods. ¡Que aproveche!

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Bright with a deep ruby purple core with a moderate ruby rim and slight staining as tears form on the glass.

Aroma: Moderate intensity with ripe strawberry and cherry fruit with its own woody spice notes mixed with vanilla and cinnamon barrel spice.

Palate: Full bodied with strawberry, red berry fruit on entry with sandalwood, cinnamon and haunting floral notes as the mid palate unfolds.  Finish is long and clean with balanced red and black fruit, woody spice and a lingering floral accent. Our 2014 Reserve Tempranillo really shines with a variety of Mediterranean / Middle Eastern foods like roasted lamb with garlic and thyme, moussaka, or Mujadara- a Middle Eastern dish of lentils, rice, aromatic spices with caramelized onions.
