2014 Tempranillo "Chileno"
Our 2014 vintage of the Tempranillo is an excellent representation of our Estrella district vineyard. This vintage was aged in mostly neutral barrels, really letting the fruit characteristics shine. On the nose, aromas of ripe Bing cherries are grounded by wet clay and a hint of vanilla. Plums and a touch of earthiness are found on the pallet, brightened by a nice mid-palate acidity. The lushness in the mouth balanced by finely polished tannic structure supports a wide range of foods. We suggest Mediterranean spiced chicken kebabs, roasted garlic hummus and a good friend.
