2015 1850 Tempranillo
Tempranillo, Heringer Vineyard, Clarksburg, 2015 $24/ Wine Club $19.20
The extra several years of age we gave this wine in bottle are showing beautifully. No wonder Spain does this! Earthy tobacco, dried cherry, leather, smoke, sweet oak and forest floor aromas give this wine a seductive nose that keeps you contemplating. On the palate, dried strawberry flavors and a smooth entry lead to a big mid palate and long finish. This wine could age another 10 years in bottle if stored properly, and continue to become smoother and smoother.
Try pairing with cured or grilled meats, paella or gumbo.
