Berryessa Gap Tempranillo

Wine: Berryessa Gap Termpranillo
Cost: $16.00 (online)
Store: Appears to only be available in California, and one restaurant in Idaho

Tempranillo is the major grape of the Spain’s Rioja region. We have found that the Tempranillo grape and our climate are an excellent match. Our Tempranillo is a regional favorite and regularly sells out within months of release. Be careful, it will seduce you."

My brother in law gave us this wine for Christmas. He is attending grad school out in California and this wine is from a local winery.

This quite an aromatic wine, with a very intense flavor. It tends to be a bit on the bitter and acidic side, but it's nice on a cold winter day. I'm enjoying it this afternoon as I look out over the snow, but I think it would be best served with a nice piece of red meat.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
