Selection International with Grape skins allow the winemaker to choose a country of origin kit with excellent varietal character, bold flavors and aromas and full-bodied tannins, all in a wine that drinks well young and rewards patience.
Selection International Grape Skins Spanish Tempranillo shows the black cherry, raspberry, plum and tobacco notes of the varietal, but the wine tends towards lushness and an overflowing of soft, ripe tannins, rather than bright fuit. Vanilla and spice notes in the oak give way to a beguiling hint of dark coffee on the finish. Medium-to-full bodied, it will drink well under three months and will soften impressively after six months to a year in the bottle. Serve with tapas, like grilled chorizo, rich tomoato dishes like Moussaka or even grilled sardines.
