Written Notes

2012 Red Lily Tempranillo (100% Tempranillo), 2 years in French Oak Color: Medium dark garnet Nose: Rich dense spicy chocolate, plum & cassis with a hint of raspberry at the end for brightness. Simply outstanding. Fairly intense, and quite seductive. Palate: Deep dark red fruit flavors. Again, plum and cassis, laced with chocolate and berries. Medium tannins actually hide some of the fruit that wants to come out. Some bottle age should entice that fruit to the surface in a few years (3-5 minimum). Excellent balance. The wine is excellent now, but I’d much rather drink some of their 2012 “Red Blanket” Tempranillo and/or 2013 “Life of Riley” now, and allow this wine to develop into its full potential. $35.00 U.S. Retail. A good buy if you have the budget, and the storage space to allow this to age. Excellent wine! 94 Points. 500 cases produced
