Proper glass is key to enjoying this wine
Description: Medium ruby to garnet in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features some sandalwood, pomegranate, blueberry, red currants, oregano and tobacco leaf. Medium body with medium+ tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.
Negatives: Some heat from the 14% alcohol on the finish and a little watery
Interesting Point: Using the smaller Tempranillo wine glass smooths out the tannins versus the larger Cabernet Sauvignon glass
Drink now on its own or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Hot & Smoky Vindaloo with Pork Belly.
