2008 Bajada Carneros Tempranillo
The cool elegance of Carneros terroir is an ideal match for Spain's favorite red grape, as the 2008 Bajada Tempranillo amply demonstrates. A splendid summertime red, the wine's expressive bouquet of rose petals and spiced strawberries lead to a sultry palate full of delicious sweet cherry flavors, complete with nuances of herbs and black pepper. The finish gains strength with a velvety rich tannin that reveals nuances of creamy vanilla and cinnamon. This is the kind of wine that turns a simple summer BBQ into a memorable occasion.
