Great care was taken when it came to selecting the barrels that make up this exceptional wine. Like the 2019 Tempranillo, the Barrel Select has flavors of cherries, chocolate, sweet tobacco, and mocha. Choosing barrels that were of exceptional quality and extra aging has added flavors of smoke, vanilla, tea and delicate fig with a smooth and lingering finish.

Tempranillo (Temp-ra-nee-oh) goes by many other names; Tinta de Toro, Tinto Fino in Spain and Aragonez or Tinta Roris in Portugalare just to name a few. It is a red wine grape that is mostly associated with the Spanish Rioja region where it is primarily blended with Grenache and Carignan. However, it makes an excellent single varietal wine. As of 2015, it was the fourth most widely planted wine making grape in the world, proving its popularity. The Texas High Plains is a particularly good region for growing Tempranillo as it has a similar climate to Spain.
Food Pairing Notes
