Inspired by the energy of the lively tapas bars throughout Spain, Tapeña's distinctive food-friendly wines from Spain's most successful wine-making family arrive with a rich, sleek style that is turning heads. With Tapeña, any table becomes the best in the house. Find us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/tapenawines Tapeña (tah-PAY-nyah) is the ideal complement for an evening of food and conversation among close friends. In Spain, going for tapas (TAH-paz) is the American equivalent of bar hopping with an epicurean twist. At every taberna, tapas (small plates) are served communal style - each person is armed with a glass of wine and a fork. Peña (PAY-nyah) is slang for a group of close friends. Read less

This smells a bit hard, mineral and almost metallic but not without a nice blend of floral and herbal top notes over slightly indistinct jammy fruit. A touch sweet and a touch soft in the mouth, this has very soft tannins, and actually gains some richness with air delivering rather lush, juicy yet again slightly indistinct purple fruit on the palate. The finish is clean and short and shows a touch of chalky tannin with watermelon flavors. Simple and easy to drink with a nice blend of lushness and freshness. 83pts

This smells rather earthy with an herbal/floral edge to the light dried cherry fruit framed with a touch of vanilla. A touch soft on entry with very soft tannins and enough acid to just keep this together. It feels quite broad on the palate due to the low acid, though the flavors remain fresh (if slightly jammy) and simple delivering a nice blast of cherry fruit with a hint of blueberry. The finish is a bit thin, yet refreshing, though some might find it a bit raw. Simple with a nice freshness to the fruit. 85pts

Red fruit, light, not very tannic at all. Great for casual sipping without anything needed to balance it out.

Deep red color, with a full mouth feel. Rich and lush with a smooth finish. Compliments hearty meat and gravy dishes, stews and goulash

Tasting Notes:Opening with powerful violet-red hues, this wine has a tremendous concentration of ripe cherries and juicy candied fruits. The palate is intense in rich, ripe, dark fruits balanced by soft tannins and a lovely spicy mouthfeel. It is well structured, soft but lively, ending with a lingering velvety finish.

Garnet colored, this wine is lush and sultry. Bright aromas and flavors of fresh blackberries and cherries fill the glass. The finish is velvety with whispers of pepper and exotic Spanish spice.
