Review date: June 4, 2017

Wine Review: This very dark violet colored Tempranillo from Zuccardi is very good. It opens with a blueberry bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a cedar infused plum with notes of red cherry and a hint of cinnamon. The finish is dry and its fine tannins and flavors drifted away nicely. This easy to drink Tempranillo would pair perfectly with a thick Angus bacon burger off the grill. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense red ruby color. Ripe fruits like figs, cherries, plums, integrated with spicy aromas and dried fruits. Soft entry with firm tannins and balanced acidity. Greasy and persistent finish.

Organic status: not organic

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.
