Wine Review: This Tempranillo from Paso is ruby colored and opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle blueberry and mild red raspberry blend. There is some nicely integrated oak and vanilla as well. The finish is dry and its fine moderate tannins are sticky and linger for a while. This wine would be perfect with Beef Bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2008 EOS Tempranillo is an elegant wine of many layers showing the prime features of this variety. The senses are first struck by the brilliant garnet color. Silky aromas of blackberry, chocolate, vanilla, and clove develop changing balances as the wine sets in the glass. Rounded tannins, earth, white pepper, and smoke finish the wine with long drying textures.
