2008 Napa Valley Tempranillo

by David on September 20, 2010

Here’s the perfect wine for tapas night! This lush, round Tempranillo is just right with some garlicky prawns or your favorite chorizo dish. Not so familiar with Tempranillo? It’s the most popular grape in Spain as the backbone to delicious red blends made all over the country.

What to expect? Rich, ripe cherry, strawberry, turned earth, tobacco and spice. Sounds good? Well, it’s the lush, velvety texture that’s going to get you – one glass begs for another – enjoy! Drink now and through 2014.

Tempranillo and food: No need to limit yourself to Spanish cuisine! The impeccable balance and velvety mouth-feel make our Tempranillo an easy-going partner for flavorful grilled meats, roast lamb or pasta with red sauce. Try a glass with Colleen’s recipe for Zesty Pepper Steak with Jalapeño Reduction Sauce. Salud!
