    Varietal: Tempranillo

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 102533

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This garnet-red colored expression of Tinto del Pais (aka Tempranillo) is aged for 5 months in French (85%) and American (15%) oak. Aromas of spice-box, white pepper, plum, and black cherry carry through to the palate where they are enhanced by earthy and herbaceous undertones with a medium to long finish. This rich and well-balanced wine can be enjoyed now or in the next couple of years with hearty meats or stews or strong cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Barco de Piedra is 100% Tempranillo aged for 5 months in French and American oak. A glass-staining opaque purple, it offers up an enticing bouquet cedar, spice box, violets, cassis, and black cherry. This is followed by a rich, flavorful, firm wine that will evolve for 1-2 years. This lengthy bargain will drink well through 2015. It is what over-delivering is all about.
