(100% tempranillo; all stainless steel): "Bright ruby. Dried cherry, licorice and pungent herbs on the nose. Firm and precise on the palate, with juicy acidity giving lift to the flavors of bitter cherry, licorice and black pepper. Finishes spicy and tight, with a subtle herbal note, dusty tannins and a touch of redcurrant. Shows none of the jamminess that one finds in most wines at this price point: it's pretty tough to beat this one in the bang-for- the-buck sweepstakes."
"Made from 100% Tempranillo, this traditional red table wine from Spain is medium-bodied with flavors of black cherry with undertones of vanilla and oak. " ~ Winery notes
Dominio de EgurenView all from Dominio de Eguren
"Dominio de Eguren was founded by the fourth generation of the Eguren family. Marcos Eguren is the winemaker and Miguel Angel Eguren is the general manager. The philosophy of the project is the selection and vinification of the highest quality grapes from contracted vineyards that the family controls in Manchuela. Planted on trellis, these vineyards of Tempranillo, Bobal, Viura (Macabeo), and Airén were selected by the family for their advanced age, poor soils, and unique microclimate.
The family performs a selection of the highest quality grapes and vinifies with a cold soak and stainless steel fermentation to produce young, clean, high quality, affordable Spanish wine."
