Wine Review: This pitch black colored Spanish Tempranillo opens with a unique chocolate and black cherry like bouquet with hints of leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is an interesting strawberry and chocolate blend with hints of black cherry and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins are rather sticky and linger for a bit. This wine would pair well with duck confit. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 100% old-vine Tempranillo from a perfectly ripe and not overly hot vintage this underwent malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging for two years in American oak. As with all wines from Alejandro Fernandez, the wine is unfined and unfiltered. Deeply robed, densely fruity and richly tannic with floral cedar spice and a powerful, rounded finish.
