Tempranillo (pronounced as Tem-pra-nee-yo) is arguably the king of Spanish grape varietals and has recently developed a love affair with the American consumer. Tempranillo is the predominant grape varietal used to make the classical wines from the Spanish regions of Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Cataluna; however it is also grown in Portugal where it is known as Tinta Roriz. Generally, Tempranillo has a flavor profile of plum, blackberry, blueberry, and dark cherry.

The flavors that develop on the palate reiterate the initial aromas; however offer a more intense expression of blackberry coulis, fresh black currants, and sun-dried blueberries with a warming undertone of sandalwood-like-spice and mocha.  Only seventy five cases available at this price.  Get it while you can before supplies run out!
