2018 / Red

2018 RESERVE TEMPRANILLO

The historic Spanish variety, Tempranillo has found a successful home in the 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 2018 Reserve Tempranillo tempts you with beautifully layered fruit, exotic spice and floral highlights, and a long complex finish with firm tannins. This wine will definitely gain further complexity and balance with a few years in the cellar. It never fails to amaze with its affinity toward a wide variety of foods. ¡Que aproveche!

Tasting notes

Appearance: Clear, bright with a deep ruby/purple core and light rim, and moderately stained tears on the glass.

Aroma: Aromatic with muted, ripe strawberry roll-up and black cherry fruit, oak and baking spice barrel notes, dusty baked earth with red and purple floral notes.

Palate: Full ripe but muted fruit of red and black cherry, strawberry fruit on entry with oak and barrel baking spice on entry. The mid-palate shows dusty, baked clay with sustained fruit and intriguing floral accents leading into a moderately long finish with fresh acidity and firm, mouth-filling with sustained fruit, spice and oak notes.


Food pairings

The 2018 Reserve Tempranillo is a wine that will gain complexity and balance after a few years in the bottle. Enjoy it now with a rack of lamb roast or lamb stew, or in a few years with an aged steak, or porchetta.
