Tempranillo 2014 Fiesta

Winemaker Notes

Our fruit driven Fiesta Tempranillo is a fantastic representation of vintage and terroir. Bright garnet in color, this wine opens with aromas of red fruit, cherry, plum and spice notes. This sleek and silky Tempranillo unfolds into flavors of black currant, mocha, French vanilla with a lush and velvety tannin. Enjoy with your favorite Spanish tapas.

"Fiesta is the lightest, most fruit forward of the four different Tempranillos from Abacela. In a great year such as this, it's also substantial and authoritative, with deeply driven flavors of red and blueberry fruit, a whiff of oak and slightly grainy tannins. This wine clearly over-delivers for the price."
