Winemaker Notes

Receive one of three possible labels*.

The 2009 Spring Seed 'Scarlet Runner' Shiraz has an impressive nose of rich, dark chocolate (a classically McLaren Vale characteristic), black fruit and cherry ripe. The palate is full and even, with a smoothly approachable tannin structure. Great balance and length make for a wine which is much more than the sum of its parts. In other words, delicious!

*Specific labels cannot be requested.

Critical Acclaim

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Vivid ruby. Sexy, high-pitched blackberry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of cola and smoky Indian spices that gain strength with air. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering sweet dark berry preserve flavors and very soft tannins. Alluring and open-knit shiraz with plenty of immediate appeal and finishing sweetness.

Notoriously food-friendly with soft tannins, modest alcohol, and refreshing acidity, Tempranillo is the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. It is important throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, where it is known as Tinta Roriz and is an important component of Port wines and the table wines of the Douro region that Port calls home. California, Washington, and Oregon have all had moderate success with Tempranillo, producing a riper, more fruit-forward style of wine.

In the Glass

Tempranillo is often aged in new oak for the integration of spicy, woodsy, and herbal flavors, often with hints of vanilla, coconut, and dill. The grape itself produces medium-weight reds with bright red and black fruit aromas and hints of spice, leather, and tobacco, with no shortage of flavor.

Perfect Pairings

Tempranillo’s modest, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity make it extremely food friendly, pairing with a wide variety of Spanish-inspired dishes—especially grilled lamb chops, a rich chorizo and bean stew, or paella.

Sommelier Secret

The Spanish take their oak aging requirements very seriously, especially in Rioja. There, a system is in place to indicate on the label how much time the wine has spent in both barrel and bottle before release, which is helpful to the consumer trying to determine the style of an unfamiliar wine. Rioja can range from Joven (fresh, fruity, and unoaked) to Gran Reserva (complex and oxidized from extended barrel aging), with Crianza and Reserva in between.
