2013 La Cantina King Valley Tempranillo

La Cantina or "The Cellar" in Italian is a family enterprise situated in the heart of the King Valley. The Corsini family started growing grapes in 1980 with La Cantina opening in 1995 and are part of the rich Italian heritage in the region. Grapes are allowed to slowly ripen in the cool climate to bring out true varietal characteristics with no preservatives or filtration in the wine-making process.

Medium crimson red colour with mauve hues at the rim.

Dark cherry, blackberry, tobacco, cola and earthy tones highlight the sweetly-spiced bouquet of this Tempranillo.
The palate is invitingly soft and warm with juicy blackberry spiciness, dark cherry, leather, subtle earth notes that are framed by a fine tannic balance. Flavours linger long after the final sip. 

Well crafted and good value for this better than average quaffer.
