Winemaker's Notes

100% Tinto Fino This new wine, Cepa 21, is aimed at consumers who have the expertise and open-mindedness to discover new tasting characteristics and who also appreciate the subtlety and elegance of a wine that is soft and sweet on the palate with bold aromatics.

Cepa 21 is the pure expression of the wine-making revolution that has been taking place in our country over the last years.

A gorgeous cherry red color with violet along the rim. A broad and complex nose with notes of candied black fruits (mulberry, blackberry and blackcurrants). It has an oaky presence, both noble and elegant. The feel in the mouth is opulent and accompanied by a structured and elegant aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby color. Intensely spicy aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and incense. Juicy and fresh, with vibrant red berry preserve flavors, silky texture and good mineral bite. Reminded me of a serious New World pinot noir. Finishes with excellent tangy persistence and a strong echo of red berries. This stylish wine is made by the Emilio Moro family."

The Bodegas Cepa 21 blew me away last night. I was searching my collection for the right red to accompany a veggie lasagna. I took a chance on this wine and was rewarded with an almost unbelievable flavor experience. This wine stood up to the tomato and garlic in the lasagna and complimented every bite with ripe fruit flavors and a subtle hint of licorice. Even my wife, the red wine hater, loved it. The bottle disappeared quickly and enjoyably. This wine will go well with many Italian and Spanish dishes. I am ordering more, as it was as fine a wine as I have tried in over a year. The only disappointment was that I didn't have a second bottle to open last night.

This is a really nice tempranillo, quite dry with a beautiful deep purple color that sits heavily in the glass. The nose presents a scent of leather with a hint of chocolate and berry. The taste is somewhat fruity, with hints of cherry and cassis, but still quite dry with a pleasant finish. I had this wine tonight with leftover corned beef and cabbage from St. Patrick's Day, so at the very least you can call it versatile, but I think it would go quite well with a rare grilled steak with some grilled veggies and olive oil as well. Of course it's not after dinner and I'm quite enjoying my final glass all by itself.
