Now for the real Tempranillo, my first from Cayuse. Finally found some at a proper price.
This is some funky juice, has that same nose as their Syrah. Almost as great as the Tempranillo from Force Majeure
$95.00 per on a 3 pack
If you don’t like this then you need to stick to Paso, this is full on Washington. — a day ago
A fun discovery while in So Oregon over the fall. Opened the first bottle post tasting and dim was delightfully surprised by a delicious experience. Black cherry, rhubarb and raspberry profiles supplemented with vanilla based American Oak notes. — 2 days ago
In a word “Elegant,” 100% organically farmed Tempranillo from village of Laguardia, aged in barrels for nine months limiting the oak influence. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and subtle light spice. Palate, clean and fresh fruit flavors of cherry and sweet blackberry, very smooth with super fine velvet tannins. Long finish, complex ending bringing everything together. Outstanding about 1000 cases made. Don’t hesitate if you see a bottle. — 9 days ago
Leather, violets and earth on the nose. Dark cherry, tobacco and mushroom on the pallet. Soft tannins and long finish. Better the second day. Great QPR ($30), especially for a Gran Reserva Rioja and an over ten year old vintage. Just picked this one up a few weeks ago. — 8 days ago
Nose of cherry, dill, oak, beef jerkey, and black pepper.
Quite highed toned with lots of sour cherry and plum. A lot of acidity with hints of dill and creamy oak. Pretty mild tannins.
I originally had this is a blind tasting and thought it was a very good new world pinot because of the red fruit, acidity, and noticable oak. Either way, great wine. — 5 hours ago
Trader Joe's, ~$10
Medium transparency, dark cherry red color. Red fruit and spice nose. Fairly full bodied and dry but with a semi sweet fruit and baking spice flavor. A little sharpness on the tongue but not in an overly acidic or astringent way. Silky smooth. Not typically a big Tempranillo fan but it's so smooth for the price that I enjoyed it despite being a bit dry and full bodied for my tastes. — 10 days ago
