Reminiscent of the wines found throughout Spain, our 2014 Spanish Suite is a blend of Tempranillo and Granacha with a little Syrah and Petite Sirah blended in. Deep red and intense in the glass, aromas of dark cherries and black plums with full-bodied taste to please the palate. Aged in neutral barrels for 18 months this wine focuses on the fruit ending with a pleasing acid fruit balance. This wine will pair well with a wide variety of tapas and paella.
