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.

Aromas of crystallized honey comb and dried apricot introduce the palate of this full yet subtle dessert wine. Soft notes of honeysuckle and ripe nectarine lead into a decadently long finish of vanilla bean and perfectly ripe white peach.  Late harvest wine is wine made from grapes left on the vine longer than usual. Late harvest is usually an indication of a sweet dessert wine.  Viognier have natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality

$20.00 from the SANTA YNEZ VALLEY

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.

A blend of primarily 90% Pardina, also known as Cayetana Blanca and Jaen Blanco, this grape is grown abundantly in northwest Spain even though it is not commonly known in the U.S..  It displays a lemon-gold color, with a subtle nose of pear and fennel, and flavors of citrus and subdued melon in a medium bodied, medium acid, fresh white that is excellent when cold.

Soft and light on the palate, it's a dry wine with a tinge of sweetness - notes of honeysuckle, lemon curd, and stone fruit are balanced with vibrant minerality.

A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. 

It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto) giving it a charmingly light sparkle.
