Guide Review - Tempra Tantrum 2008 - Tempranillo/Cabernet
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.
