Just southwest of Rioja is the gem-like wine region, Toro. There, Tempranillo grapes thrive. If this wine were from the more recognized region of Rioja, it would be 2x the price.
Cabernet Sauvignon fans, you will be hard-pressed not to opt for Vatan over your Silver Oak and Jordan.
Perfect for burgers through the balance of barbecue season, this tasty Tempranillo is one of our favorite Spanish reds.
"... a brilliant bouquet of blackcurrants, toasted spice, crushed violets, and flowery incense. Rich and full-bodied, with good acidity, beautiful balance, and a great finish, it's going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 20+ years. It's a stunning wine." James Suckling
Suggestion #1: Serve it alongside your favorite burger recipe.
Suggestion #2: Make a meal of it on its own with a wedge of Manchego.
Suggestion #3: Even better- your favorite burger with a wedge of Manchego melted on top.
Fabulously balanced, this terrific Tempranillo is a great alternative to California Cabernet.
