100% Tempranillo (aka Tinta del Pais). The vines were planted from 1908-1930.
Here, the fresh, red berried, mineral character of Ribera shows through, with a slightly spicy, minty note. This is one of only a few Ribera wines where you can taste the "cut" and chewy, juicy Tempranillo flavors unburdened by oak. A crisp fruited wine with structure and substance, it's neither light nor unduly heavy. This would pair well with Thai beef salad, marinated Korean BBQ pork, Peking duck and meat or chicken dishes with a piquant play of spices.
"The purple-colored 2010 Torremoron is 100% Tempranillo that was raised in stainless steel. Spice box, licorice, lavender, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a juicy, ripe, succulent wine that will be a crowd-pleaser for another 4+ years. It is an outstanding value."

This wine is amazing. I recently visited this property in Spain and was blown away. Some of the grapes that go into this wine come from 150+ year old vines. Unbelievable for the price!!!!!
