Tinto Rey Super Tinto 2015
|Region||California, Central Valley, Dunnigan Hills|
The famed Tinta de Toro Tempranillo clone is the foundation of our Super Tinto Red Blend. This clone is from the warm Toro region of Spain and lives up to its bold, muscular moniker. We chose the most intense and flavorful lots of Estate Grown Petit Verdot, Tannat and Graciano to blend with the Tempranillo to create a unique Dunnigan Hills blend that tames the bull with finesse. Concentrated flavors of dried cherry, rhubarb, tobacco, cream and vanilla are layered over velvety tannins. The depth of flavors lingers in a rich, lush finish. Pairi with grilled lamb chops or a sizzling steak topped with a dollop of creamy Gorgonzola.
This wine is big and bold yet still easy to drink. It has oodles of black fruit aromas, dense fruit flavors and generous dashes of spicy, smoky oak. The texture is firm enough to offer balance, yet is silky enough to remain enjoyable.
