Applegate Valley, Rogue Valley, Southern Oregon, Oregon
Bouquet and palate:
This Tempranillo was filled to the brim with sweet plums, black cherries, tayberries, black raspberries and violets! Interestingly, I really felt the tannins just on the tip of my tongue, the rest of my mouth was enveloped in a smooth, gentle caress. I suggest ordering a case– it’s a great value for the price!
