Tapena Tempranillo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The quintessential red wine grape from Spain, Tempranillo (temp-rah-NEE-yo), the little early one, adapts well to varied growing conditions. Tapeña Tempranillo is a rich, bold blend of fruit, earth and structure, rounded out by a deliciously soft mouthfeel. We think of this Tempranillo as something like Pinot Noir in blue jeans. This delicious wine captures the sometimes elusive character of Tempranillo - luscious red cherry fruit wrapped around an earthy, intense center. The finish is long and layered with a hint of coffee and chocolate and a pinch of spice. This distinctive wine from the heartland of Spain is unlike any of the top three red varietals so utterly available from all over the world. Appellation: Tierra de Castilla, Spain Composition: 100% Tempranillo Acidity: 5g/L pH: 3.54 Alcohol: 13.6% Vintage: 2005

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
