Food Pairings for Gundlach Bundschu Tempranillo Sonoma Valley
Unusual variety for GunBun when you look at the rest of the lineup. Still, this is a decent wine. Doesn’t have quite the intensity I was expecting. Nice aromas of plum, leather and smoke. Had some nice clove and spice taste but fruit not quite there. Good acidity.
Tasted at the winery 9/21/09
Intense aromas and flavors of brambly blackberry, deep black cherry and mission figs, with layers of meaty hickory, cinnamon, black pepper and anise spice as often found in classic tempranillo. The firm, smooth tannins of this medium to full-bodied red draw the flavors into a long, chewy finish. Delicious now, this wine will show best within eight years from vintage.
