It seems the tempranillo grape is subject to huge variations in flavor profile, apparently due to the weather-related elements of the terrior. Once in a while, the winemaker gets the perfect fruit and handles it perfectly, producing a wine like the '06 K-S. Our wine palates vary, of course, but in my opinion, this was a truly great tempranillo, and I'm sincerely sorry the vintage was sold out before I could score a meaningful supply. I'll be keeping my eye, ear, nose and tongue on alert for an equally amazing temp (sorry, the '07 was a dissappointment,) My wife and I taste a lot of Spanish and domestic temps and there's a big vacant spot in our wine room for the next great find.

Winemaker's Notes:

Has an aroma of plums, cassis and hints of tobacco. Color is dark, violet garnet. On the palate it is medium bodied and exhibits mixed spices, berries and substantial tannins that turn velvety as the wine opens. Try pairing with Tapas. The 2006 growing season started with a mild spring, which was followed by a dry, hot summer. These factors contributed to excellent acid levels in the grapes, balanced canopies and small berries.
