Wine Review: This deep red colored California Tempranillo is very good. On the nose, it displays black raspberry, brambles, super dark fruit, spice, blackberries and tobacco aromas. On the palate, we found it to be medium to full bodied, well balanced, rich and velvety with nice fruit. Those flavors are primarily black currant, coffee, and bittersweet chocolate. We suggest that you drink this on its own. – Stuart and Karen

Winemaker Notes: Tempranillo is the other Spanish grape variety grown at Martian Ranch. Wet gravel, bay leaf and rose petals with hints of smoke and blueberry. Dark red fruit flavors surrounded by firm tannins and a long finish. Enjoy with herb-crusted beef tenderloin or hearty coq-au-vin.

Organic status: not organic
