    Winemaker's Notes:

    Tinto Rey means Red King. Tempranillo is the king of Spanish red wines and one of the most important red varietals in our Matchbook vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills. The Spanish varietals Tempranillo and Graciano contribute spicy red berry fruit flavors, Syrah adds rich flavors of black cherry and blueberry, the spicy cedar and tobacco notes are from the cool-weather Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Blend: 54% Tempranillo, 34% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Graciano

    Critical Acclaim:

    My favorite wine of this group is the 2008 Tinto Rey, a blend of 54% Tempranillo, 34% Syrah and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Graziano. Notes of licorice, tobacco leaf, red and black currants, and spice are presented in a round, generous, medium-bodied style.

    Nice rich wine. Licorice, blueberry, earth and currant flavors. Certainly was expecting a lot less for the price and am pleasantly surprised.
