Tapena wines from Spain

Tapena Tempranillo Spanish red wine Tapena Tempranillo Spanish red wine

The quintessential red wine grape from Spain, Tempranillo (temp-rah-NEE-yo), the little early one, adapts well to varied growing conditions. We think of this Tempranillo as Pinot Noir in blue jeans.

Tasting Notes
Intense ruby red in color along with violet-blue undertones which characterize this wines youth. This classic Tempranillo holds juicy red fruit aromas with just a touch of chocolate. On the palate, you'll find ripe red fruit flavors with a soft and silky finish carrying supple tannins and great length.

Food Pairings
Tapeña Tempranillo combines beautifully with roast or grilled red meats in addition to a multitude of different tapas, from grilled kebabs to garlic prawns.
