2013 Nevada Tempranillo
Dry, exploding with tobacco, earth, and spice on the nose. Rich in tannin and flavor with a surprisingly smooth finish. Medium ruby red in color and medium bodied red wine. This wine typifies the wild west of Nevada. This wine benefits from an hour of breathing before serving

A seamless Tempranillo. Balanced and focused, this marries earth, tobacco, and leather elegantly with soft raspberry and a good tannic structure. Offers notes of fresh herbs and spices with toasty cedar on a lingering finish. Typifies the wild west of Nevada! Enjoy this Tempranillo with brisket, smoked meats, and beef stroganoff!

Tempranillo is a black grape variety widely grown which makes a full-bodied red wine in its native Spain. Its name is the diminutive of the Spanish temprano ("early") a reference to the fact that it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grapes
