This Tempranillo is 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.

So I jumped out here and brought me and my buddy this Wine opening accessory and thought this would be cool to try out.  Even though the Better business bureau had a few complaints about it.  One of my viewers asked were there an easy way of opening up wine bottles and something I could recommend.  I'm ole school but I thought I would try this product because it looked pretty cool.

Plaza de la Reina red marries three varietals Tempranillo, Grenache and Monastrell into a totally tasty blend that displays a medium ruby hue and aromas of plum and cranberry with some spice.  The flavors are surprisingly concentrated for a wine of this price with ripe fruit, nice tannins, and a long finish.
