Twisted Oak Tempranillo Blend Calaveras County the Spaniard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

We have quite a hodgepodge of tasting notes for The Spaniard, so rather than wrap a narrative of questionable cleverness around them, we're just going to throw them right at you: "cherry sweet tart" "Leather berry berry" "Oakberry pepper" "Great gams" (gams?) "Fruitalicious" "Way better than beer" "A great [Italian] red" (that was one confused taster, and we won't repeat the inappropriate ethnic characterization that rhymes with Winnebago.) Our favorite: "It's turtles all the way down!" OK, so that last one is maybe too hip for the room (you can read about it on Wikipedia) - we're pretty sure he was referring to the long finish.

Light cherries and vanilla on the nose - good use of oak, nice vanilla. Bit tart on the finish, but nice. Bit pricey though.

    Temp based wine with Graciano and Garnacha. $49. Big, big wine but balanced. Like drinking silk velvet. Very nicely made, with great depth and concentration in the mid-palate. A bit hot in the aromas, but suspect it would blow off quickly. New release. Tiny bits of roasted coffee in the aromas and flavors.

    Paired wonderfully with Herb Roasted Lamb chops with a Black Olive Tapenade accompanied by Roasted Mushrooms and Tomatoes all lightly covered with a Basil Vinaigrette. I don't think a wine could've gone better with this meal!
