Spanish Vines Crianza Tempranillo 2008
A new-world red with notes of plush, ripe fruits, and impressive, complex structure. Aromas of freshly dipped chocolate strawberries and tobacco are followed by a lengthy finish, revealing subtle oak and a zing of racy acidity. Serve with game, red meat, lamb, mushroom sauces, or hard cheeses.
100% Tempranillo. Bottled & produced by Purisima Concepcion S.C., a cooperative founded in 1958. Following in the tradition of the Teatinos monks, a group of winemakers from the town of San Clemente created the Sociedad Cooperativa Purisima Concepcion in 1958. It has an average annual production of 15 million kilos of grapes from over 5,683 acres of vineyards belonging to its nearly 300 members. The winery has undergone a major modernization with an investment of over five million euros, combining the latest state-of-the-art technology with the Teatinos monks' artisanal techniques of the sixteenth century.
