Nice. Bullfighting remains very popular in most regions of Spain, and in the city where Torero Mendoza (named after the famous bullfighter, or torero, Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza) is produced is home to a unique Plaza de Toros that actually house a large wine cellar with barrels that are under the first rows of seats! Produced with only 100% Tempranillo, the Spanish red wine grape that is as noble and historic there as the sport of bullfighting, this a young and bright un-oaked version shows the real essence of Tempranillo in its youthful state: fresh cherry and red berry fruit on the nose, with a palate that is classically soft, silky and savory and has hints of sweet fruit, easy acidity and gentle tannins. Ideal with spicy barbecue and Mexican food.

Smooth, easy drink. Strawberry notes. On the sweeter side for a dry.

Nose is blackberries and a touch of nutmeg. Really smooth with blue, black and strawberry notes along with a hint of tangerine. This is wonderful; I can pair with just about anything!
