Tempranillo

4988 visitors
Tempranillo is a variety of Vitis vinifera, a red grape commonly used in winemaking. This grape is native to Spain where it is widely grown. The name is derived from the word temprano (meaning early in Spanish) due to the fact that the grape ripens several weeks earlier than most red varietals. Tempranillo is often referred to as Spain’s noble grape and is the main variety in Rioja wines.
More information on Tempranillo
Food Pairing: Pairs well with tapas, sheep cheeses and with classic Spanish dishes such as roast lamb, fish and olives.

2005 Tempranillo

This wine is the grape they grow in Northern Central Spain to make their Rioja wines. It grows well in Northern California and it makes a refined wine with good aging potential. We ...more age this Tempranillo in French oak. The cool end to the 2005 growing season made this wine lighter in style but its delicate flavors are sure to please even the most sophisticated palate.

2004 Tempranillo

Blended with a small amount of estate grown Graciano to give it added complexity and structure, it demonstrates lovely nuances of dark cherry and blueberry with a delicate undercur ...morerent of mocha and toasted oak. A subtle layering of vanilla and cinnamon in the bouquet is complimented by a rich and lingering finish.

Food Pairing: Will improve with proper cellar aging for seven years. You can drink it on its own, but it is also a wonderful accompaniment to a variety of dishes including paella, chicken quesadillas, grilled pork tenderloin or spaghetti and meatballs.

2004 Tempranillo

The most pedigreed red grape of Spain, especially associated with its historic Rioja region, Tempranillo possesses a dark lush fruit that ages well. "The nose is of very ripe black ...moreberries mingled with red and black stone fruit like plums and prunes. The dark purple wine fills the palate with a rich medley of intensely ripe fruit. Paella and other rice and grain recipes are lovely with the medium-bodied styles of Tempranillo, Lamb and other fragrant red meat dishes are also good mates.

2004 Tempranillo
Sierra Foothills

Our Tempranillo is a wonderful Northern Sierra rendition of this variety idolized in Spain and rapidly gaining popularity in this part of the world. The name of the grape, "Tem ...morepranillo", means "a little early" in Spanish and refers to its early ripening properties, making it a perfect match for mountain growing. Aromas of strawberry, cinnamon and vanilla characterize the nose, continuing with great oak integration and a long & smooth finish in the mouth. We have yet to find someone who does not like this wine.

2005 Tempranillo
California

This wine started as a Wine Club exclusive and has been so successful that we have added it to our quiver of wines. The Tempranillo grape has been an integral part of the Rioja win ...morees of Spain for many years. In Spain however, it is blended with several other varieties to produce the style they desire. The grape and many of its characteristics resemble Zinfandel. You should note a bit of allspice, plums and strawberries in the nose and a lingering finish of fresh fruit in the finish. Great with your next batch of Paella!

Purple-black in color, our Tempranillo displays complex aromas of ripe blackberries, cassis and hints of coffee. It is luscious and round on the palate with delicately integrated t ...moreannins and a soft finish. Black Currants and raspberry flavors combine beautifully with some clove spice and moderate acidity. As in the traditional style of the Rioja, it is blended with our highly prized Graciano. Our Tempranillo exhibits the varietal character of this noble grape along with a bold California winemaking style. This wine will continue to age well for 5-8 years.

Deep and saturated ruby hue. High-toned minty aromas have a have a jammy, plummy undercurrent. A ripe entry leads to a full bodied palate with lean tannins and juicy acidity. A big, fruit forward style that will work well with pizza and pasta.
