Wine Review: This Old-World styled Tempranillo will really be enjoyed by readers who like this style. It is ruby colored and opens with an old leather cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and round in the mouth. The flavor profile is an old oak infused plum with notes of strawberry licorice. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are rather sticky and linger for a while. I would pair this classic-styled wine with one of my favorite Old-World dishes, beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken
