Tasting Notes

91 Points from James Suckling 2018 Report
Double Gold, Reserve Class Champion - Houston Livestock & Rodeo International Wine Competition

This tiny production wine took our breath away. Tempranillo is the nimblest of the heavy-weight varieties with great potential for ageing. This is a full-bodied wine with a muscular structure, firm tannin and ample fruit. It expresses punchy aromatics that suggest a rain-drenched fire pit, dark roast coffee and roasted black plum. The finish is complex and lingering with hints of red currant and sweet tobacco smoke. New-wave Tempranillo!

Suggested Food Pairing

Pair with roast lamb, a beefy and rich steak cut, Texas brisket, smoked ingredients, mushrooms, and salty, aged cheeses.
