2013 Bold Sister

$20.00

The Wine:

We just love the lush and approachable expression of Tempranillo grown in Baja Norte. These grapes were hand harvested from a vineyard characterized by sandy alluvial soil in the heart of the Guadalupe Valley. Though Tempranillo means “early” these grapes were the last harvest of the season for us and the full maturity of the fruit is evident in the finished wine.

Tasting Notes:

Color:

Dark cherry.

Aromas:

A potent, expressive, and velvety wine displaying dark ripe fruit and spices.

Flavors and Textures:

Meaty, round and sumptuous with well-integrated tannins. Look for stewed prunes, dark cocoa powder, cherry cola, with a hint of star anise and well-worn leather. This wine is rich without being ponderous and slightly opaque.

Food Pairing:

Duck confit tacos, roasted red peppers stuffed with rice and blood sausage, mildly spicy Cajun jambalaya.
