Kennedy Shah Tempranillo 2009

Member Review by Goodlifeduo:

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.
