High Country 2018 Tempranillo - Gapsted Wines

"A spurt of dried tobacco tannins, dusty and tactile, define this mid-weighted wine as much as the blueberry and cherry tones. This has an alpine coolness to it and is unlike any domestic tempranillo tasted. A good thing, as they are largely egregious. Savoury, peppery and firm. Complex enough to reach for another glass."
