2017 1850 Tempranillo
Produced with 100% Tempranillo from the E2 vineyard in Fair Play. We retained 20% whole clusters for fermentation to add additional structure, and extended maceration until January before pressing to barrel. Aged in 100% new oak, 50% each American & French Oak for 20 months.
Sweet cherry aromas with earthy tobacco, leather and smoke. Dry on the palate with fruit-forward tart cranberry, dark cherry and cassis flavors. Blueberry flavors on the center palate with a creamy chocolate finish.
Lasagna, pizza and dishes with tomato-based sauces pair well with Tempranillo. Dishes with a bit of spice also pair well, including traditional Mexican flavors like mole, or Spanish Paella. Lamb is considered a traditional pairing in Spain.
