Tapeña 2007 Tempranillo
Tierra de Castilla, Spain

Inspired by the lively tapas bars of Spain, where wines are shared by close friends over traditional dishes, the Tapeña Tempranillo is a great blend of vibrant fruit flavors with undertones of earth. Intense flavors of plum and violets with a hint of orange peel are rounded out with fine tannins and a balanced, lingering finish. This food-friendly wine will be a perfect accompaniment with paella, grilled lamb skewers or garlic prawns.
