Our 2018 Joy Tempranillo is dark purple in the glass. This young wine offers fresh, fruity aromas at this stage, like blackberry, cherry and raspberry. There is a hint of oak that will develop into more mature characters in a few months. It has a smooth, fruity and tannic attack and then lush fruit with layers of tannins in the mouthfeel. Before the finish, there are more aromas that spring forward, like strawberry and pepper.
This polished, medium-intensity wine is easy to drink and will pair well with dishes like roasted turkey and chicken, pork chops or game meat. Try it with the featured recipe: Mexican Tortilla Casserole.
