Hidden Creek Tempranillo 2017
Tempranillo has really found a neat groove in the rocky outcrops of the Granite Belt. It's a variety that seems to continue to thrive and improve and is made consistently well throughout the region. This is a top example.
Tense and sapping, dark plum and some purple fruit jostle for attention early. Some char and charcuterie roll along with a late rush of pepper and earthiness. Firm tannins to finish, though it softened with more time in the glass. A fabulous food wine.
Drink now to six years.
Region: Granite Belt
