Guide Review - Tempra Tantrum 2008 - Tempranillo/Cabernet

Tempra Tantrum wines is owned by the Osborne family, which has a long history producing Spanish sherries, wines and brandies. It is produced by Rocio Osborne, a sixth generation vintner in the Tierra de Castilla appellation.

Although a blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Cabernet, it is not as full bodied as we imagined it would be. We noted raspberry, plum and blackberry flavors.

We would recommend this wine for pairing with tapas or grilled pork or beef.

This is one of a series of blended wines that use Tempranillo together with Cabernet. Other wines in the series include blends with Merlot, Shirah and Grenache.
