CVNE Crianza 2012 Tempranillo Red Wine

(0 customer reviews)


The tempranillo is a less well known wine when compared to merlot or chardonnay. However, it does have a similar flavor profile of a cabernet sauvignon. The difference comes from the tempranillo having a thinner skin which creates a lighter body and a more subtle spice flavor. This bottle comes from the Rioja Valley which is Spain’s most popular viticultural region.

Flavor Profile

This tempranillo has a bright cherry and a subtle spicy aroma. The flavor palate is similar to a Cabernet Sauvignon, with a little less body and nice cherry flavor up front. The tannins create a nice spice and is surprisingly refreshing with little linger.

Food Pairings

Wine lovers can expect to enjoy pairing the tempranillo with your typical red meat dish. I would recommend being more specific with the red meat and go for a cut of meat that has more fat like a filet mignon or even a t-bone.

Tempranillo, The Good

It’s a surprisingly refreshing red wine. Even with spice and cherry flavors it cleans off well and lets you enjoy other flavors which is great for pairing with other foods.

Tempranillo, The Bad

If you’re looking for a real robust and full bodied red, this won’t be your thing.

Wine Critics

Cherry and vanilla flavors mingle with leafy and spicy details in this round red. Orange peel acidity, cedar and tobacco notes give this a traditional accent. Drink now through 2025. – Wine Spectator
