Tempranillo Maduro, 2017

Produced by Croma Vera Wines

It's as soft and smooth as a bottle full of silk, tasting like a red but drinking like a white. We call that having your cake and eating it, too. On the nose, it's dark cherries coupled with the warm, spicy scent of wood spice. On the tongue, it's black plums that embody a robustness you might find in a hefty leather coat that wears you like it's been wearing you your entire life. Drink it alone. Drink it with someone. Or, drink it with something good and rich. Think: Pizza, pork tenderloin or a rich, savory French Cassoulet.
