This juicy, vibrant red really overdelivers, demonstrating loads of black cherry, raspberry and dried herbs. It possesses some balanced acidity and shows off good tannic grip on the finish.
Venta Morales Tempranillo is a Jorge Ordonez selection that comes to us from La Mancha, Spain. La Mancha is the largest wine growing region in the world where the Tempranillo grape flourishes. The warm growing season in the Mediterranean climate produces dark ripe fruit with incredibly balanced tannins. The grapes come from 33 year old vines and is 100% tank fermented, as opposed to oak, which leaves the wine vibrantly fresh without overpowering the rich flavors and aromas of Tempranillo.
|Robert Parker:The 2009 Venta Morales is 100% Tempranillo raised in stainless steel. Deep crimson-colored, it emits aromas of spice box and fragrant black cherry. On the palate licorice and other black fruits emerge leading to a finish with no hard edges. Drink this excellent value over the next 2-3 years.
