Import Wine of the Year: 2011 Monterey Wine Competition
Tapeña (tah-PAY-nyah) is the ideal complement for an evening of food and conversation among close friends. In Spain, going for tapas (TAH-paz) is the American equivalent of bar hopping with an epicurean twist. At every taberna, tapas (small plates) are served communal style—each person is armed with a glass of wine and a fork. peña (PAY-nyah) is slang for a group of close friends.
Put the two together with Tapeña, and everyone is speaking the same language! Learn about the vibrant Spanish lifestyle, the amazing vineyards and wine region that Tapeña hails from and the winemakers behind these radiant reds.
Four bottles of Tapena wines, wine charms, wine bucket, Spanish nuts, Spanish olives, Spanish cookbook and a guide to throwing your own Spanish Tapas party.
Tapena Wines include:
Tempranillo – A rich, bold blend of fruit, earth and structure, rounded out by a deliciously soft mouth feel. Tempranillo is a luscious red cherry fruit wrapped around an earthy, intense center. The finish is long & layered with a hint of coffee, chocolate and a pinch of spice.
Garnacha – A rush of dark fruit with an underlying bright spice of rosemary and thyme. Full bodied, but still lively, with rounded tannins which combine with the fruit to produce a velvety finish.
Verdejo – The Spanish answer to the Sauvignon Blanc with a greater floral quality. The palate is full of bright stone fruit, beautifully balance by crisp, refreshing acidity and a lingering finish with a touch of minerality.
Rose – A luscious combination of seductive Garnacha, juicy Monastrell and hint of Shiraz. Features bright strawberry aromas with fresh cherry flavors and traces of citrus. The result? Beautifully balanced with a crisp, refreshing acidity and a lingering finish.
