Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Tempranillo opens with fragrant black raspberry bouquet with hints plum and faint leather. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, savory and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a blackberry and black cherry blend with notes of cedar blended in. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are very friendly. This wine would pair well with many foods. I would pair it with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
