Winemaker's Notes:

Opening with powerful violet-red hues, this wine has a tremendous concentration of ripe cherries and juicy candied fruits. The palate is intense in rich, ripe, dark fruits balanced by soft tannins and a lovely spicy mouthfeel. It is well structured, soft but lively, ending with a lingering velvety finish.

Tapeña Garnacha is the wine that good friends can share over a tapa -maybe a few shavings of Spanish ham or a simple plate of olives and cheese. A versatile wine, it is light enough to work with grilled fish but performs equally well with steak or lamb.

My Notes:

About Tapena:

Tapeña is an innovative brand that offers expressive, fruit-forward, indigenous wines from the heart of Spain. The name Tapeña fuses two of the liveliest Spanish concepts: tapas, flavorful foods made to share, and peña, a close group of friends. Inspired by the energy of the lively tapas bars throughout Spain, these food-friendly wines from Spain's most successful winemaking family, the Ferrers, have a rich, sleek style that is approachable, lively and just a bit adventurous.
