Tertulia Cellars, 2008 Les Collines Vineyard Tempranillo

This Tempranillo has a beautiful aromatic nose filled with dark chocolate, cranberries, sandalwood and a touch of wet stone. The mouth feel was big, rich, and round with chewy tannins and a slight lychee element. The finish is long and lingers with chocolate covered berries. Even though at only 7%, the Petit Verdot adds extra grip to the structure of this wine. Our 2008 Tempranillo is a great combination of old world finesse meets new world style. Serve with braised meats, exotic spices, stews and roasted chicken. The structure and complexity of this wine really lends itself to be paired with food.
