About This Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon is the great red grape of France.

In Spain, the great red grape — and the rival of Cabernet Sauvignon — is Tempranillo. There, it’s produced in a variety of styles all around the country. The two main styles bring the oak aging debate to the fore.

Winemakers who prefer to accent vanilla, toast and meaty notes in the wine will age it in oak — in most cases, American oak. Those who wish to underscore the pleasant fruit and jammy quality of the variety will eschew oak aging so that the grapes can really speak for themselves.

The latter style is embraced at Rasgon, where the 2016 Vino de la Tierra Castilla Tempranillo is bright purple-blue in hue, fresh and bright in aroma, and delectably fruit-forward and jammy in the mouth. The wine makes an ideal companion to not-too-spicy Mexican food, as well as meat-based Spanish tapas and filet mignon.

    This wine was fruity strawberry?, with light to medium acidity. It had a pleasantly long finish.
