Over the holidays, I was lucky enough to win a Tapeña Wines party pack from Beau's Barrel Room - thanks Beau! I received a cookbook, corkscrew, refrigerator magnets, a pen, spices, and a bottle each of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Rosé and Verdejo.
So far we've tried the Rosé and Verdejo. The Rosé (a combination of Garnacha and Monastrell) was a bit surprising: a bit fruity, but dry, with nice acidity. Tasty on its own and also with food. The Verdejo was my 52nd varietal for my Wine Century Club list and a nice addition to it. Great floral aroma, with a nice mouthfeel, apricot-like flavors, and a clean finish. Also delicious on its own or with dinner (we had it with a taco salad).
Can't wait to try the Tempranillo and Garnacha!
