Province: San JuanDon Baltazar Tempranillo Reserva 2004
Grapes: 100% Tempranillo
Aging: 12 months in French and American oak
Now this is what we mean when we talk about tempranillo. This is not an explosive wine by any means, but the variety of flavor that it presents is nothing short of stunning. Red currants, wild strawberries, dill, fennel, and licorice all make appearances, gliding over the palate as the long finish fades away. Drink this wine now, with roast duck, venison, or other game, allowing their mild and sweet flavors to mingle.
