Tempranillo – 2019

Tempranillo – 2019

Full-bodied red of moderate to high levels of tannins and acidity. Very dark crimson in color, attractive and brilliant. A large dose of raisin and smoky meats melds with accents of black cherry, tobacco, and vanilla on the nose. On the palate, this is muscular and a bit fleshy. Its acidity can sometimes be citrusy and orange peel–like. In come flavors of plum, spice and berry jam, yielding a complex and detailed wine that puts a focus on finesse over power. It’s a unique, knee-buckling expression.
