Wine Tasting Notes
Tinto Rey is Spanish for "Red King," and Tempranillo is the king of Spanish red wines. It's also the most important varietal in our Matchbook Vineyard. That's why Tempranillo is the foundation in our unique Mediterranean blend. Rich aromas of blueberry, red fruit and rustic leather stand out as flavors of boysenberry and red currant lead to hints of chocolate truffle and plum. The Tinto Rey is medium-bodied and seamless, with soft-grain tannins and just an edge of zesty tartness weaved in with the sweetness of the fruit. Pair with a rare rack of lamb, spicy Spanish sausage or wood-fired pepperoni and bell pepper pizza.
50% Tempranillo, 27% Syrah, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Graciano, 4% Tannat
