Great fruit and earthiness. Nice QPR as well! Can't beat the mix of fruit, acidity and earth that comes through on the palate. Read more

"Purple robe with brilliant sheen. Unmistakable nose of mulberries and a hint of baking spices, both which follow on the palate. With time a floral note emerges, as well as suggestions of dark chocolate. Rich, powerful flavors without any undue weight--surprisingly graceful for such a forcefully flavored wine. Who said elephants can't dance? Fine grained tannins and bright acidity suggest a further evolution." Jason Palma; Wine Consultant, Sam's Wines


Winemaker's Notes:

For the third successive vintage Abacela has produced a restrained, supple Tempranillo designed for immediate consumption upon release. The dark fruit character and hardy structure of this estate's Fault Line Vineyards is tempered by the lush berry fruit and smooth, velvety nature of their close neighbor, McCorquodale Vineyard. This is a terrific food wine that offers a wide array of pairing opportunities from mole chorizo tamales to grilled pimenton dusted lamb chops.
