Winemaker Notes: Iberian Blend is a blend of 4 classic Spanish varieties, Tempranillo, Carinena, Garnacha and Mataro. I patterned this wine after the regional country field blends I came to love as a student in Spain many decades ago.
*Brilliant garnet color. *The nose is full of ripe stone fruit with floral notes and a hint of spice. *Flavors closely mimic the nose, ripe fruit, round and rich in the mouth, subtle French oak, with a long soft finish *A full bodied and complex wine, pair it with California and Meitrranean cusine.
