Marques de Tezona Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Tempranillo 2016

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 09-Oct-2017
Even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, paler edged. The nose is elegantly proportioned with good intensity of bright red cherry and raspberry fruit lifted with red florals. The aromatics unfold to reveal a tight core of dark herbs and subtle earthy notes. Medium-bodied, the palate has a sweetly rich and elegantly concentrated palate of red cherries and raspberry fruit with herbal detail. The mouthfeel is fresh and vibrant and flows with good energy and modest tannin extraction providing a gentle backbone. The wine carries to a fine, concentrated, lingering finish. This is a finely concentrated Tempranillo with bright and vibrant cherry and raspberry fruit on a light-textured palate with lingering aromatic nuances. Serve with pasta, poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. A blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Syrah from bush vines 15-25 y.o., hand-picked and fermented to 13.0% alc. Winemaker: Jorge Garcia Cuenca. 17.0+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $20.00
