Tempranillo


Turn Me Sweet Turn Me Sweet $11.00

Proving we will look anywhere in our quest for wines comes a Spanish Tempranillo made by a German winemaker in the style we usually see reserved for Blaufrankish or Dornfelder. Lovely dark fruit, bit lower alcohol, and great with just a touch of chill. A bit sweet but not too much, this is an affordable fun red that goes down easy!



Laya Laya $11.00

From Castilla-La Mancha in Central Spain, a unique blend made with the Garnacha Tintorera grape. Not only is the skin red, but so is the flesh. This provides a sturdy structure and noticeable tannins. Aged only 4 months in oak, this wine has luscious red and black fruits with hints of spice. Definitely one you should try, especially at this price!



Montecastrillos Montecastrillos $13.00

In Ribera del Duero, Tempranillo is king. Torremilanos takes care producing this grape through organic and biodynamic farming, allowing it to shine. Rich black fruits, subtle spice, leather and vanilla. Superbly balanced, pairs well with roasted or grilled meats and tomato based sauces.



Torre Oria Torre Oria $14.00

Valencia sits along the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Known for growing ripe varietals such as bobal, which comprises 40% of this blend. What makes this wine so unique is that it undergoes the same aging requirements as a Rioja. This being a Gran Reserva means it was aged in barrel and bottle for a minimum of 5 years before release. Bold dark fruits, spice and licorice, great structure and finish.



Torremoron Torremoron $16.00

Quintanamanvirgo has 94 inhabitants, a bar and this winery. From higher elevation and ancient bush vined tempranillo, this is one of the most intense, but still lively and bright Tempranillos you'll ever taste. Vines were planted from 1914 - 1934 and produce grapes with remarkable concentration and delightful complexity! How this much wine comes all the way here at this price is crazy. Enjoy!

Now you can be more specific when you say you like blends.



Penalba Lopez Penalba Lopez $22.00

A remarkable white aged 11 months on the lees in French oak from a grape we'd never heard of and one we've never seen in Ribero. The rich buttery oak is the perfect foil for vibrant acidity and richness. Flavors of key lime, peach, apricot, toasty oak, and more. One of our favorites!



Vina Alberdi Vina Alberdi $25.00

The Rioja Alta region boasts not only some of the most historic vineyards of the area, but it is also the coolsest, and has the altitudes in Rioja. This allows for structured tempranillo balanced with acidity and complex flavors. This reserva shows beautiful black fruit, cedar, fresh dill and coconut from its time spent in 100% American oak. Enjoy slowly and savor.
