Deep ruby in color with medium viscosity and plenty of backbone, the 2017 Tempranillo stands tall, chin up with perfect posture. Elevated aromas of dried fig, raw hide, maraschino cherry sit up front. What lingers are chunky, almost chewable tannins that just kind of relax in the pockets of your cheeks. And like clockwork nutmeg and toasted clove start to tickle the back of your throat, almost signaling for your next sip. Tempranillo loves spice and pairs well with Mexican/South American eats.
Food Pairing: Shredded chicken in red mole sauce, served over a gluttonous tower of Nachos.
