2018 Cellar Club Tempranillo
Tempranillo is always the first red grape we process during harvest. Typically, mid-September before most the whites are in. -Chris Eberle
Tempranillo is native to northern Spain and widely cultivated as far south as La Mancha. The two major regions that grow Tempranillo are Rioja, in north central Spain, and Ribera del Duero, which lies a little farther to the south. Our Tempranillo is grown right here in Paso Robles on the Patricia Diane Vineyard by Eberle Winery partners and owners Dick and Claudia Woodland. This wine has many dimensions which is why it is a favorite of our wine club members. Aromas and flavors of fig, red currant, tobacco, lavender, wet slate, and red licorice. Lush and fruity with fine tannins and a dry finish.
Eberle's Tempranillo with its acid and tannins that you can chew calls for a dish that has some fat, acid, and spice to it. A wine perfectly paired with grilled polenta with a fresh tomato sauce, chile rellenos or Jambalaya.
