Robledo 2007 Tempranillo Lake County

Robledo's 2007 Tempranillo comes from the North Coast wine country's best kept secret: Lake County, California. One of the most exciting up and coming grape growing regions today, Lake County is thriving as grape growers and vintners discover the superb quality of its grapes. The region surrounds Clear Lake, the largest natural lake in California and is quickly earning a reputation for producing some of the world's greatest wines. This 2007 Tempranillo from Robledo Family Winery is a great example of the wine style coming out of this region: deep and rich with spicy aromas and a balanced mouth feel. Awarded a Gold Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, Robledo's Tempranillo is dark ruby in color with aromas of spiced cherries and flavors of blackberries, cracked pepper and toasty vanilla. Defined with richness and acidity, this Tempranillo is very versatile with food and pairs deliciously with classic Spanish dishes, grilled lamb, vegetable casseroles, and even Chile Rellenos. [+]
